World Youth Day
In June 2016 eight people from Guernsey travelled to Kraków, Poland, where Pope Francis came to meet with the young people of the world.
We travelled as part of a group of 87 people from the Diocese of Portsmouth. Here’s what we got up to.
The next World Youth Day will be in Panama in early 2019 — if you’d like to come, or find out more, contact Tom.
