Young Lasallian WYD Gathering in Krakow

The Superior General of the De La Salle Brothers, Robert Schieler will be leading a Gathering for Young Lasallians in Poland later this month during World Youth Day.

The celebrations will take place on the afternoon of Wednesday 27 July at Saint Jana Kantego Church in Krakow.

The Polish city is hosting World Youth Day from 25-31 July.

You can find more detailed information including registration requirements here for the Young Lasallians event in Krakow.

The Brothers of the Christian Schools will also have its own stand at the Vocations Centre in the city, which will be open from Tuesday 26 to Friday 29 July.

This year's World Youth Day has taken on special significance given it is taking place in the home city of Saint Pope John the Second who founded the Catholic youth festival in 1984.

The festival has helped unite young Catholics aged from 16-35 for over 30 years, with Sydney hosting the event in 2008.

The World Youth Day week will commence with an Opening Mass on 25 July celebrated by local Bishops and conclude with an Evening Vigil and a Closing Mass celebrated by Pope Francis.

There will also be catechetical sessions led by local Bishops, a re-enactment of the Stations of the Cross, afternoon and evening shows and prayer sessions.

At the closing Mass on Sunday 31 July, Pope Francis will announce the host city for the next World Youth Day to be held in three years time.
