Pilgrims Arrive in Prague

The pilgrims arrived in Prague, Czech Republic today and saw some sites around the town. Today was a day of leisure and smaller groups were able to see sites of interest. Two main points of interest were St Nicholas Church which is a famous Baroque church. It was built in memory of a miracle of St Wenceslas. It holds a piano played by Mozart himself! Another site, the Prague astronomical clock was placed in the town square in 1410! Its one of the three oldest in the world and the oldest one in operation! Many more great sites to visit, but after a long two days of travel, an early dinner and good night of rest are in order!
Our Pre tour will be from now until July 26.  On July 26-July 31 we can’t wait to share how our teens and young adults get to interact throughout World Youth Day! From meeting other Catholic youth from around the world, attending Catchesis, Stations of the Cross and Opening and Closing Mass, to traveling around Krakow hoping for a Pope sighting!
Please note if you are following us that there is a Six hour time difference, so it is currently 12:20 for Wellington but 6:20 p.m. here in Prague for the pilgrims!
