The Mercy Centre was the international English-language catechetical and youth festival site at the re-branded Tauron Arena, the largest sports arena in Poland. From July 26 to 31, tens of thousands of pilgrims would gather together for morning catechesis, confession, adoration and Mass.

For the pilgrims from the Archdiocese of Baltimore, there was an even greater sense of home at the Mercy Centre, as Archbishop William E. Lori is the Supreme Chaplain for the Knights of Columbus.

To the many Knights and volunteers who made the Mercy Centre such a welcoming place in Kraków – THANK YOU!
