12.08.2016: Kolping meeting at the World Youth Day

A good atmosphere was indeed pre-programmed for the World Youth Day in Krakow. Hundreds of thousands of young people celebrated and prayed with Pope Francis in Poland.

For all Kolping members, Wednesday afternoon certainly was another highlight of these days of faith.  At the invitation of the Kolping Youth of Europe, they spent the afternoon and evening at a Kolping Youth meeting on the grounds of the Holy Family Parish in Krakow.  Although General Praeses Ottmar Dillenburg was not able to be present in Poland, he had sent a video message, wishing the celebrating Kolping community much joy.

After celebrating Holy Mass together, there was singing, dancing, and partying.  During the events of World Youth Day, one could see at all times groups from Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America who had one thing in common:  the orange T-shirts showed that Kolping is certainly in attendance in Krakow – and surely also next time in Panama.
