General Info

It is with that excitement that we announce our Diocesan pilgrimage to World Youth Day Krakow in July 2016 with Bishop Rhoades. The diocese is working with Dube Travel on all arrangements including our pre-World Youth Day spiritual preparation with visits to Czestochowa, Auschwitz, Wadowice and Kalwaria. We have reserved spots for 200 young pilgrims. While hotel and flight costs are still being negotiated, we have a reasonable estimate of $4,000 per person for the trip, including all transportation, lodging, WYD registration and many meals. This considerable investment will require great sacrifice for our young people, but will certainly be an experience that will impact them and bear great fruit for years to come. While in North America, we tend to think of youth as eighteen and under, the target age for World Youth Day is 16-35. For this reason, we hope that parishes will support young adults in their late teens, 20s, and early 30s, who are called to Krakow. Parish groups can determine whether to allow 16-18 year-olds to travel with their group. Please be advised that teens must be 16 by July 21, 2016 to be eligible to travel with our diocesan group.
