The Poland-wide Youth Meeting Lednica 2000 (known as Lednica) is a major annual gathering of Polish Catholic youth, organized near Poznań in Lednica (near the Lednica lake, which is believed to be the place where the first Polish monarch, Mieszko I was baptized in 966). It is the largest regular religious youth meeting in the world (with exception of those attended by the Pope). Lednica gatherings were initiated in 1997 by the famous Dominican friar Jan Góra. On 21 December 2015 he died at the age of 67. Since then, Dominicans Wojciech Prus and Maciej Soszyński are priests of Lednica. The meetings are organized every year and always take place on the first Saturday of June. The gatherings are significant demonstrations of Catholic youth activity in Poland. Pope John Paul II sent an annual special message to participants of Lednica. This tradition was continued by his successor, Benedict XVI. After his papal resignation, the tradition is continued by pope Francis.
