Polish Catholics reach out to festival attendees at this year's Pol'and'Rock

Polish Catholics on fire with their faith reached out to the peripheries this week at Poland’s version of the Woodstock music festival — Pol’and’Rock.

The missionaries brought to the festival field music, singing, joyful shouts and first of all faith in hearts and strong desire to share it with people around them.

The participants of Przystanek Jezus (which roughly translates into “Jesus Station”) brought these gifts, along with flags and T-shirts with a quotes from Galatians – “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free” — to festival attendees. And from now until Sunday they are going to share their own experience with those who come to Kostrzyn n. Odrą where the festival is taking place.

Przystanek Jezus is a nationwide evangelizing initiative that is taking place for the 19th time. It kicked off July 29 and will last until the end of this week.
