The Polish Nationwide Youth Meeting LEDNICA 2000 (known under the name of Lednica) is one of the main annual meetings of Polish catholic youth organized in the neighbourhood of the city of Poznań, in Lednickie Pola (near the Lednica Lake, which is claimed to be a place, where our first monarch, Mieszko I was baptised in 966). It is the world’s biggest cyclic religious youth gathering (excluding meetings with the Pope). The meetings of Lednica were started in 1997 by a well-known Dominican, Father Jan Góra who died on 21st December 2015, aged 67. Now Lednica’s shepherds are Fathers: Wojciech Prus OP and Mateusz Kosior OP. The meetings are organized every year and always take place on first Saturday of June. These gatherings are very important demonstrations of catholic youth activity in Poland. Pope John Paul II every year sent a special message to the participants of Lednica meetings. This tradition was continued by his successor Benedict XVI. After his resignation, it is realised by Pope Francis.
