Final preparations are underway as our diocesan team prepare to take some of our young people to Poland to meet Pope Francis and young people from around the worlds for the World Youth Day celebrations. As witnessed in this photograph we are taking things very seriously!
On Saturday a group of our adults gathered at the St John’s Ambulance Headquarters in Cardiff for some basic First Aid Training. With lots of walking to do and 2.5 million people expected in Krakow we best be prepared.
Our diocesan pilgrimage leaves on Tuesday and spends the first few days in the North of Poland at Bialystok where the group will encounter the local Church and sample Polish culture. They will then head down to Krakow for the main week where they will gather in prayer with Pope Francis and visit places like the former Auschwitz Concentration Camp and the Divine Mercy Sanctuary.
You can keep up with our journey to the city of mercy by visiting the World Youth Day section of the diocesan homepage on a regular basis. We will also be posting to Facebook and Twitter using the tag #C2KWYD
