Bri's World Youth Day Trip
Organized by: Bri Phalon
“Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy” (Matthew 5:7) World Youth Day 2016 is a gathering of Catholic youth ranging in age from 16 to 30 from all around the world to celebrate our faith together in one unified spirit. This opportunity comes only once every few years and is an important step on our spiritual journey. My youth group and I are truly excited to be given the opportunity to travel on such a pilgrimage with our church. During our time in Krakow, Poland, we will join with hundreds of thousands of youth to proclaim our faith and strengthen our relationship with God through prayer and adoration led by Pope Francis. This trip shows us how closely connected everyone is through religion even though they may be separated by the language which they speak.
