The World Youth Day Cross of the Archdiocese of Agaña made its way from the Mangilao parish of Santa Teresita Catholic Church to Dededo in Santa Barbara Catholic Church on Sunday, June 23, 2019 on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. Santa Teresita programs director and youth minister Kevin AN Delgado, not shown, and the youth of the Mangilao parish transported the World Youth Day Cross accompanied by an icon of the Blessed Virgin Mary to Dededo where it was gracefully received by Santa Barbara pastor Father Dan Bien, second from the left, assisted by Deacon Ron Pangan, left, with the parish youth ministry headed by Patti Rodriguez Anub. Father Dan blessed the cross with incense before it entered the church and was placed on the sanctuary just in time for the 5 p.m. youth Mass.
