Local Celebrations ResourcesLive Stream Button for ACBC

This July, young people will gather from all over the world in Krakow, Poland and encounter Christ anew. In this Jubilee Year of Mercy the Krakow, known as the "city of mercy" draws young people into the theme "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy" Mt 5:7

While not all young people will be able to travel to World Youth Day, they can still participate and pray alongside the Pope and the young people of the world.

An important element for local celebrations, and following the events of WYD is the live streaming provided by Xt3

Engaging the whole community resources and ideas below are for parishes and faith communities to help them be part of the World Youth Day experience to pray with and for traveling pilgrims and engaging those staying at home.
