1600 pilgrims will travel from across the island of Ireland to World Youth Day in Krackow - 48 travel with Limerick diocese (including SS102fm's own Lorraine Buckley) and many more with various religious congregations and communities.
Our Bishops have asked for prayers for World Youth Day which will take place in Krakow, Poland, during 26-30 July. The theme for WYD 2016 is “Blessed are the Merciful, for they shall obtain mercy” (Mt 5:7). World Youth Day will provide the backdrop for Pope Francis’ first pilgrimage to Poland and it is anticipated that over two million young pilgrims from around the world will attend this faith and joy filled event.
