World Youth Day of the Catholic Church was held in Poland in July 2016


“Blessed are the Merciful, for they shall obtain Mercy” (Mt.5:7)

The Centre for Dialogue and Prayer set up a special internet site for the WYD 2016 participants with resources for preparing for the visit to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial >>

In our garden we put up a big tent for meetings and religious services. Many groups made use of this facility before or after their visit in the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial.
