Hello from our SS102fm roving reporters Lorraine & Mariah!
We hope to bring you regular WYD2016 updates (depending on our WiFi connection!).
Yesterday (Monday) we spent most of the day travelling with a few Polish lessons from Fr Chris O'Donnell and Fr Michael Liston.
After arriving at our hostel, we walked around the historic old quarter of Kracow and spent a while soaking up the atmosphere and meeting people from many, many different nationalities.
When we got back to our hostel we finished the day by celebrating night prayer together which reminded us that love is at the heart of everything we do and that God is present wherever there is love.
This morning (Tuesday) we got our fetching WYD2016 pilgrim back packs complete with map, Divine Mercy rosary bracelet, baptismal shawl (more about this later in the week!) and multipurpose scarf.
Just about time for a game of people bingo, lunch and then we are setting off for Blonia Park for the opening Mass which will be celebrated at 5.30pm Polish time.
We continue to pray for all those whom we promised to pray for and ask you to pray for us too.
