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.
