The Web site for World Youth Day 2016 is already online and in English.

Pope Francis last Sunday announced from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, that the next World Youth Day would be in Blessed John Paul II's homeland.

The Krakow Archdiocese, and it's leader, John Paul II's personal secretary, Cardinal Stanisław Dziwisz, are getting ready to host the world's youth.

The Web site announces: "This World Youth Day will also be the grand day of Saint John Paul II, the day of thanksgiving for his figure, for his personality, for his love of young people and for all that he left after him – the great heritage we still live with as he continues inspiring not only young people to live in honesty, close to Christ and His Mother, Holy Virgin Mary.

Krakow is opening! The city will be happy to welcome youth from the entire world! We are inviting you today, young people from Poland and beyond, youth from Europe and from all continents! We will do everything possible to greet you, Dear Young People, in a cordial and dignified manner. And we would like to request you to bring enthusiasm and good hope for the future to our Homeland as we need to have this support in you."
