WYD Sydney 2008



What is the Vocations Expo?

A central component of each WYD, the Vocations Expo is a dynamic exhibition and discussion space exploring all vocational states of life including priesthood, marriage, family and the laity, and the call to holiness of religious and consecrated life.


Vocations Expo is a unique forum for young adults who are dedicated to their faith to seek information and guidance regarding the various states of vocational life in the Church.


The Vocations Expo was held in Hall 1 of the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre. The following are photos showing highlights from the Vocation Expo.


Sr. Doreen Bentley and Sr. Mary La Bruna were on the Pauline Family Team that helped organize the Expo.
