Every three years, the Vatican celebrates World Youth Day. This year thousands of young Catholics will join Pope Francis in a pilgrimage to Krakow, Poland for a week-long celebration of what it means to be a young Catholic.
To help those who cannot attend in Krakow celebrate, the Catholic University of America will host Krakow in the Capital, a day-long experience of World Youth Day on July 30, 2016. Co-hosted by the Archdiocese of Washington Young Adult Ministry, the Archdiocese of Baltimore, the Diocese of Arlington Young Adult Ministry, the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston, the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, the Saint John Paul II National Shrine, the Dominican House of Studies, and the Catholic Student Center at the University of Maryland, the day will be full of prayer, catechesis, and celebration of Polish history and culture.
The day will conclude with a Mass celebrated by Cardinal Wuerl and a concert featuring Marie Miller. Register here!
