There is a common misperception that World Youth Day is meant only for those in HS and college, but the call is to all young people who come with joy, who want to have a personal encounter with Christ ages 16-35 (there is no age limit on volunteers). The Diocese of Charleston is organizing a 12 day program (Friday July 22 – Tuesday, August 2) to the 2016 WYD site in Krakow, which will feature some of the most significant sites in Poland – including sites of Pope JPII, Czestochowa, and Auschwitz Nazi Camp.
