This week's announcements

Did You Know that World Youth Day happens every year? Pope John Paul II celebrated it for the first time in Rome on Palm Sunday, 1986. Since then, gatherings and festivals for youth were organized on Palm Sunday in Dioceses all over the world. Pope Francis changed the celebration from Palm Sunday to the Solemnity of Christ the King. This year will be the first time we celebrate on the new date.
