World Youth Day
In 2016, 12 charges of Krakow Social Welfare Home on the street. Łanowej set off on Holy Saturday, together with the foundation HCPT Poland, on a weekly pilgrimage, which brightened their lives. France was represented by Krakow, Malopolska and the World Youth Days.
On Holy Thursday, Bishop Damian Muskus blessed pilgrims who were travelling to Lourdes, outside the Lagiewniki Sanctuary of Divine Mercy and encouraged them to invite the World to Krakow for SDM (the World Youth Day).

A pilgrimage to Lourdes in 2015 and 2016 received blessings from Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz:
Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz blessed the Pilgrimage to Lourdes in 2014:
Translation of the letter of May 4, 2015.
I would like to extend my warm wishes of God’s blessing to the HCPT Foundation in organising a pilgrimage and a special flight of the WYD-HCPT Pilgrims by Aeroplane to Lourdes scheduled for Easter 2016 for thirty pilgrims.
I congratulate the Foundation on sixty years of its existence and I am happy that throughout all these years it has taken so many children in its care and has enabled them to realise their dreams. Crossing barriers, particularly the ones caused by illness, by all means requires great effort and determination.
I place my trust in Our Lady to support you in the preparation and organisation of the pilgrimage to Lourdes.
With best regards and blessings,
Cardinal Stanisław Dziwisz
The Metropolitan Archbishop of Krakow
