World Youth Day – catechesis, then on to see Krakow

Today we started the day with catechesis. Our English speaking catechesis was held at the Krakow Arena and was sponsored by the Knights of Columbus. There were speakers, singing and a closing mass with an arena that seats 20,000 filled to capacity!

Following catechesis today the group split into smaller groups for the day. WYD has so much to offer and Krakow so much to see! The list of things pilgrims did today is awesome.

  • One got City of Saints author, George Wiegl's signature,
  • some saw St Mary Cathedral, and Rynek Glowny (market square) and
  • one group saw the pope! (that was pure perfect luck, but we are super happy for them. )

Tonight most are at a concert which includes Matt Maher, a Saint Patrick youth favorite. Also featured are Bishop Robert Barron, Audrey Assad and Joel Stepanek. A full evening of worship and adoration.

Tomorrow we formally welcome Pope Francis!
