World Youth Day 1997 shaped Maryanne's life

When Maryanne Hacker attended World Youth Day in Paris in 1997, she realised that she was not the only young person in the church! While Paris has its own attractions, the experience of being one of 1.2 million young people gathered in the name of church has had a profound and lasting impact. Fast forward to 2007: Maryanne is 26, married to Andrew, and mother of ten month old Dominic.- Aurora
