Some of the young people traveling to one of the most significant public events in the Catholic world received a special blessing after Mass July 17 at St. Isaac Jogues Church, Wayne. They also prepared bags of religious mementos to share with other young pilgrims from around the globe at the July 26-31 event in Krakow. As part of the trip, the pilgrims will also tour Catholic and cultural sites in Europe. Read all about the Mass and the teens who are ready for the experience of their lives, here.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
