EWTN Global Catholic Network has created a special website here for its live coverage of World Youth Day in Krakow, Poland, which is scheduled for later this month. Live streams will also be available via EWTN’s regular website, smartphone apps, and cable channels.
World Youth Day, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, is actually a week-long event and “youth” is defined as ages 16-35 (“but all ages are welcome.”) The Roman Catholic Church hosts World Youth Day every three years, so the Pope himself shows up for such highlights as a welcome address, an evening vigil, and holy mass during the closing ceremony. EWTN says the event is “the largest gathering of young people in the world,” and expects to attract more than 2.5 million people this year. Here’s World Youth Day’s official site.
EWTN’s coverage, running from July 26 to July 31, will feature on-site reporting from Father Mark Mary Cristina, who hosts the EWTN series Life on the Rock; author and speaker Chris Stefanick (see him here and here); and Jason Evert, founder of Chastity Project and Totus Tuus Press.
