STEUBENVILLE, OH (March 28, 2014) - Franciscan University of Steubenville is organizing a pilgrimage to Krakow, Poland, for World Youth Day 2016.

Scheduled for July 25-August 1, 2016, the pilgrimage will begin in Austria and include stops in Vienna, Salzburg, and Munich. In Poland, pilgrims will participate in the full slate of World Youth Day festivities scheduled for the end of July 2016, and visit Wadowice, the birthplace of Blessed John Paul II, as well as the Divine Mercy Shrine. Pilgrims will also visit Auschwitz and Czestochowa.

Father David Pivonka, TOR, will serve as spiritual director for the pilgrimage. A popular speaker, preacher, and author, Father Pivonka directs Franciscan Pathways, an evangelistic and preaching outreach of the Franciscan Third Order Regular.

“World Youth Day offers a wonderful opportunity to connect with fellow Catholics throughout the world,” Father Pivonka said. “What a blessing to have World Youth Day in the native land of Pope John Paul II, the founder of World Youth Day.”

Registration is limited to 150 pilgrims. For more information, contact Kelli Beatty in the Pilgrimages Office at kbeatty@franciscan.edu or at 1-800-437-8368.
