25 years after WYD in Paris, KTO invites you to remember this great event for the Church of France and measure the progress made.
From August 18 to 24, 1997, Paris hosted the 12th World Youth Day. The subway has been invaded by young people who are smiling and singing. Pope John Paul II and thousands of pilgrims change the French capital. His Holiness came at the invitation of Cardinal Jean-Marie Lustiger, Archbishop of Paris. And so, KTO had to celebrate this A founding circle for an entire generation of Catholics in France Philippine de Saint Pierre explains.
“WYD in Paris has played an exciting role in the lives of many to participate, to follow up on an invitation”confirms the general manager of KTO. “It’s good to look back when you don’t have to go there.
