This Wednesday we will begin our journey to Kraków, where Pope Francis will be coming to meet with the young people of the world.
Thank you so much for all the help you have given us with fundraising. You have helped us raise over £3300 towards the cost of the journey!
We’ll be praying for you in Kraków’s holy places. Please pray for us, for a safe and fruitful pilgrimage.
We will be travelling as part of a group of 87 people from the Diocese of Portsmouth. We and others from the group will be recording our journey online day-by-day with videos and words – to follow along go to catholic.org.gg/wyd. The main World Youth Day events (26th-31st July) will be broadcast live online by EWTN. The Way of the Cross (Friday 29 July, 5pm) and the Final Mass (Sunday 31 July, 9am) will be shown live in the parish room at St Joseph’s.
When we get back we’d love to share our experiences with you. We’ll give a presentation in the hall after the 10:30am Mass at St Joseph’s on Sunday 14th August.
Love from the young people and leaders from Guernsey travelling to WYD – Alex, Cathy, Katrine, Nick, Sylvie, Raven, Tom H & Tom S.
