SYDNEY, Australia, JULY 17, 2007 (Zenit.org).- Residents of Sydney are being encouraged to show hospitality and give international visitors an unforgettable World Youth Day experience.

With just one year to go until the opening event, organizers started registration for the HomeStay Program, which asks locals to help house the thousands of young people expected to attend World Youth Day in July, 2008.

"World Youth Day will bring the biggest ever contingent of young people to Sydney," said Auxiliary Bishop Anthony Fisher, coordinator of World Youth Day. "Most will be accommodated in schools and parish halls, but we'll need up to 50,000 to be hosted in homes across Sydney.

"Sydneysiders are a friendly and generous bunch, and we believe many will open their hearts and their homes to young pilgrims from out of town."

HomeStay providers will be asked to supply sleeping spaces and breakfast for two or more pilgrims.

The July 15-20 event is expected to attract 500,000 youth, including 125,000 overseas visitors and up to 175,000 from other parts of Australia.

Sillydoll,

Are you coming to the meeting of pilgrims in Sydney in July 2007. A diversion to the South Island of New Zealand will make it an unforgettable experience, it will be winter but it has its own attractions.
