Almost 350 Singaporeans are set to attend World Youth Day being held in Krakow, Poland from July 25-31. The official Singaporean Archdiocesan contingent is being headed by the Office for Young People (OYP), said a media release from the archdiocese. "This international World Youth Day, OYP is leading its largest ever contingent of young people from Singapore to the World Youth Day," said OYP Chaplain, Father Jude David. "We are also blessed that his grace, Archbishop William Goh, is accompanying our young people," said Father David. "It is our prayer that this pilgrimage will be a true experience of sharing and living out our faith in Jesus Christ — and a concrete experience of our communion as one church," he added.
Some 2.5 million young people from around the world are expected to attend the gathering in Krakow, the childhood home of Saint Pope John Paul II who initiated the gathering in 1985.
