Kraków 2016: Great Hopes

The next World Youth Day will be held in Blessed John Paul II’s city, announced Pope Francis before praying the Angelus at the closing Mass of the 2013 Rio WYD. This will be the second World Youth Day in Poland, after Czestochowa in 1991.

To learn about how John Paul's homeland is beginning to prepare for the event, ZENIT interviewed Bogdan Oset, a catechist at an institute of Czestochowa and a member of the Organizing Committee of the 6th World Youth Day, held in 1991. Bogdan Oset lives in Czestochowa with his wife, Ewa, and three children. He works as a catechist and professor of religion at the Cyprian Kamil Norwid Institute.
