Slideshow: Cross surfing shows teen faith is strong


Anyone who’s been on lately knows that Tom McCarthy Jr. has been turning out some outstanding slideshows and today’s, while brief, is no different. In this exclusive slideshow to The Welcome Matt, we look back at last week’s Youth and Young Adult Pilgrimage, as young people pass a large wooden cross, which was carried throughout a four-mile march through Baltimore City. It’s lovingly called cross surfing around Baltimore.

Tom, Catholic Review’s staff photographer since February, recorded students from Mount de Sales signing as they walked through Baltimore. He used that audio over the images of the cross surfing, which adds a fun layer. 

Without further ado, here’s the slideshow.
