We direct our encouragement chiefly to the families knowing any foreign language in a way possible to communicate. The pilgrims never spend the night individually so the family provides a place to spend the night as welll as breakfast for at least 2 people. The young people commute to the place of accommodation on their own and reach Cracow at their own expense. We hope that showing the silesian hospitality and thanks to collaboration, we will gather numerous base of families, providing the young people good conditions of stay.
The chance of accommodation in the families is an incredible experience for the participants of each World Youth Day. It is closely related with meeting their culture, observing how they live and what they do for a living. For this reason, preparing this event, we approach the families of our archdiocese about opening their homes and be willing to receive the young people during ‘’Missionary Week”.
