With hundreds of thousands of young pilgrims from around the world, a Salesian Youth Ministry group, and a group from the Salesian Sisters URSpace Glasgow project, arrived in Krakow this week for the 31st World Youth Day.

One of the highlights was the Salesian Youth Ministry day, attended by Mother Yvonne Reungoat, Superior General of the Salesian Sisters, and Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, Rector Major of the Salesians of Don Bosco. The international event was attended by around 6000 young people. Mass was celebrated, the Blessed Sacrament exposed for adoration, and plenty of fun and games were had, with singing and dancing thrown in. The Good Night was given at the end of the day by Mother Yvonne and Fr Ángel. Read more about it on ANS.

Although the weather was sometimes a little British, it didn't dampen the pilgrims' spirit at the open air masses or the amazing catechesis experiences, and the excitement of being with Pope Francis and hearing his message to them brought plenty of sunshine. 


We wish them, and all the WYD pilgrims, every belssing for the rest of their time in Krakow, and a safe journey home.
