Australian identity is an important part of World youth Day, where you come from is part of how you participate and how people engage with you. It is great fun finding out where people come from and it is no secret that most of the world has a soft spot for us Aussies. So identifying as part of the group and to the rest of the world needs some thought.

There are two national initiatives by the Australian WYD Committee that boasts Australian identity during our WYD pilgrimages. Firstly the Aussie pilgrim T-shirt and secondly the Australian Gathering during the WYD week where Australian gather to share their pilgrimage stories and the celebrate being Australian in the midst of the universal Catholic church.
