- As an official delegation of Chilean people we want to bring to World Youth Day thousand people. In addition, many pilgrims will come for sure on their own - said in an interview with the members of the Committee of the World Youth Day, Fr. Marek Burzawa, Vicar of the Diocese of Santiago de Chile.
For young people from Chile coming to Poland is particularly important because of the two popes closely linked to this event: the Holy Father Francis and St. Pope John Paul II.
