Dear Parish Family,
Next week the Church Universal will celebrate the gift of our young people to our family of faith and the whole world as pilgrims begin to gather for World Youth Day in Kraków and here locally at “Kraków in the Capital” on the campus of The Catholic University of America, Saturday July 30th. This is a special time for our young people – and all the rest of us in solidarity with them – to reflect on the call to discipleship and how to live as witnesses to Jesus’ love and mercy in the world around us.
Over the years, images and voices of past World Youth Days have inspired countless young people to deepen their commitment. Let us pray that our young people may be a witness to a world that needs the peace of Christ so very badly.
Your servant in Christ,
