„Picnic with families”


It has become a tradition of World Youth Day to offer overnights at families to pilgrims on their way to the WYD host city. By creating a community with a particular family and discovering selected traditions, organizers will provide one day – Sunday for so called “Picnic with families”. Every family hosting pilgrims is responsible for organizing them the whole day. The forms of spending the time are various: from visiting simple places in the area, taking the pilgrim for a whole-day trip or family meetings at traditional Polish table.


The dishes typical for the region or homemade cakes are worth preparing to make young people taste Polish cuisine. A good way to spend this day can be a picnic organized with other families hosting pilgrims or even with a whole city or parish in case of villages. Such meetings give the opportunity to meet new people and integrate with many cultures.
