Four students from the Diocese of Alexandria recently experienced a once-in-a-lifetime journey across the world to be part of the 2016 World Youth Day, July 26-31 in Krakow, Poland.

They were among 34 pilgrims who traveled to Krakow with the Sisters of Our Lady of Sorrows from Lafayette.  The 14-day trip began on July 20.
