World Youth Day 2016 One Year Out Celebration

‘Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy’     -Matthew 5:7

 

On Friday, 31 July, eighteen girls from years 9 and 10 travelled to All Saints Catholic Girls College in Liverpool to participate in the One Year Out Celebration for World Youth Day in Krakow, 2016. Archbishop Anthony Fisher was in attendance to address approximately 500 students from the archdiocese and to celebrate mass with them. After lunch the students were treated to an insight into pilgrimage from Sam Clear, a performance from some Polish dancers and some Polish food.  The journey to Krakow has well and truly started, and the girls’ excitement at the year ahead is steadily escalating.
