Days in the Diocese

Opublikowano: 2015-01-16 11:20:23

You will spend the first three days outside of Poznan with families in the parishes of Greater Poland region. The schedule of events will refer directly to the three following blessings: “Blessed are the poor in spirit”, “Blessed are the clean of heart” and “Blessed are the merciful”. During those days you will learn about the local traditions and the culture, as well as pray together with the youth from all over the world and the people of Archdiocese of Poznan. It will be an excellent opportunity for you to enjoy the Polish hospitality, which has been admired since the earliest centuries. There will also be time for fun activities.

For the weekend of 23 and 24 July you will gather in Poznan together with the Polish youth and other pilgrims from abroad. On 23 July you will get to know the capital of Greater Poland a little bit more. Yet, it will not be traditional sightseeing but you will walk along unique evangelical and educational paths. On Saturday evening you will be invited to Poznan’s parishes, where, apart from fun activities, you will taste the local cuisine. On Sunday we will all meet at the Youth Festival. We will celebrate the Commissioning Mass in the Pilgrim Zone “JORDAN”. Afterwards, there will be adoration, worship and concerts.

On Monday 25 July everyone will travel to Krakow for the central events and the meeting with the Holy Father.

And here are a few advantages of our region and some suggestions:

  • Poznan is well-connected with the rest of Europe: an international airport in the center, railway and a 3-hour drive by bus from Berlin. It is only 360 km from Krakow.
  • We offer transport round our diocese for pilgrims, as well as transfer to Krakow.
  • In the days prior to “Days in the Diocese” we have prepared suggestions for trips around Poland.
  • Taizé European Meeting was held in Poznan in 2009/2010.
  • St. John Paul II visited Poznan and its area numerous times.
  • St. Faustina Kowalska lived, worked and prayed here.
  • Baptism of Poland took place 1050 years ago near Poznan. This is the reason why our diocese took the name JORDAN.
  • We were one of UEFA EURO 2012 host cities.
