WYD Trek: -- TNG: Day 2 preview

St. Maximilian Kolbe

Fr. Maximilian Kolbe in 1939.

Today we travel to the west of Warsaw about 50 kms to visit the St. Maximilian Kolbe sanctuary called Niepokalan√≥w, located at Teresin.

St. Kolbe was martyred in 1941 in Auschwitz. St. Kolbe was canonized in 1982 by Pope John Paul II and declared a martyr of charity.


Warsaw to Teresin.
