The Archdiocese of Cincinnati has 80 spots available in a 13-day pilgrimage to Poland for World Youth Day 2016 from July 21 – Aug. 2 next year.

 

In addition to WYD events, the group will visit Auschwitz and the site of St. Maximilian Kolbe’s martyrdom cell, the famous and miraculous painting of the “Black Madonna” in Czestochowa, the Sanctuary of Divine Mercy, and places where John Paul II lived and worked, including the Beskidy mountains where he received inspiration and would take youth for hikes. Participants will also attend daily Mass.

 

During WYD the group will stay at AGH University of Science and Technology, within walking distance of many of the events. Logistics will be coordinated by Mission Youth,  an international pastoral program directed by Regnum Christi, which organizes both international mission trips and local mission opportunities.

 

The pilgrimage is for young adults ages 16 – 25 and departs from Chicago. The $3,600 fee is payable in three installments over nine months and includes all meals during the WYD events (participants are responsible for meals during travel days) and accommodations at youth hostels. Passports are required.

 

For more information, see the Mission Youth website or contact Tim Colbert, Regional Director of the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry (OYYAM) in Dayton at (937) 223-1001, ext. 5050 or Maria Gaviria at gaviria.mm@pg.com.
