Take the PollAre you stoked for World Youth Day?

We really hope you pilgrims are keeping your cameras at the ready to take pictures and videos that you can upload to social media with a simple hashtag (#KrakowtoRome) to be entered in our contest. You might get a free trip to Rome out of it! Good Luck!
