World Youth Day, initiated by Pope John Paul II in 1986, attracts more than one million youth from almost every country. World Youth Day (WYD) is an opportunity for the youth of our parishes to learn about their faith and to build bridges of friendship and hope between continents, people, and cultures. The week-long event culminates with mass with the Holy Father. We have around 30 young people from St. John-St. Paul hoping to travel to Kraków for WYD in 2016. We are asking for your help to support our young people by buying a ticket to our closed end raffle. Only 500 tickets will be sold.
1st prize: $5,000 2nd prize: $2,000 3rd prize: $1,000
Ticket price: $100. The drawing will be held on June 7th, 2015. All proceeds will be used to send our young parishioners to World Youth Day. Members of the joint St John-St Paul World Youth Day group will be outside each Mass this weekend inviting you to participate in the raffle. A raffle form can also be downloaded here.
