World Youth Day Krakow 2016 

Krakow 2016 is the 30th World Youth Day since it began in 1986. We are returning to the homeland of the Pope who started it all, St Pope John Paul II.  Right from the beginning of his pontificate, St John Paul said to young people, "You are my hope".  He trusted young people, he encouraged them in their faith and witness.
On this page you will find all the latest news, pictures and videos direct from the Ignite Team in Krakow.
