The Archdiocese of San Francisco website,, will livestream EWTN’s coverage of World Youth Day events in Krakow, Poland. Just go to the front page of the website to watch—keep in mind the nine-hour time difference when scheduling your viewing.


World Youth Day is July 25-July 31.  Pope Francis will join the gathering July 28. This gathering of young people from around the world is held every three to four years and includes teaching, eucharistic adoration, prayer, and Mass with Pope Francis.  American bishops who will present catechesis this year include New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Boston Cardinal Seán O’Malley, Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput, Chicago Archbishop Blaise Cupich, Bishop Robert Barron, and eight others. 


About 40,000 pilgrims from the United States, including 85 bishops, are attending the event.  This is the largest US contingent ever to a World Youth Day outside North America. 


Those who cannot travel are able to participate in several ways: The free app, Pilgrimage; official website,; blog; U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Facebook  and Twitter  accounts. Social Media via #WYDUSA
