Millions of youth from around the world are now gathered in Krakow, Poland, for World Youth Day 2016. Pilgrims in the Archdiocese of Detroit unable to travel to Poland are attending World Youth Day Home this weekend, and celebrating their faith in solidarity with those gathered overseas. Pope John Paul II began the tradition of World Youth Day, Saturday and Sunday, July 30-31, which includes catechesis, fellowship, worship, and renewal. World Youth Day Home is being held at St. Mary Parish, Orchard Lake, will feature Mass with Archbishop Allen Vigneron, a pilgrimage walk, prayer, live music, Polish culture, and sleeping outside. Your gifts to the Catholic Services Appeal support the important work of the Youth Ministry Office, which empowers our youth to live as disciples of Jesus Christ and actively witness their faith.
