In July 2016, over 400 youth and young adults from the Archdiocese of Detroit traveled to Kraków, Poland to celebrate World Youth Day with Pope Francis and millions of other Catholics. The youth had the opportunity to experience the universal Catholic Church with others just like them from 187 countries. It was a true pilgrimage experience. Above is a video showing highlights from the week.

The next World Youth Day will be in 2019 in Panama.
