App Helps Youth Engage God’s Word after World Youth Day
A groundbreaking mobile app is helping young Catholics study God's Word together.
Hundreds of thousands of young people from around the world descended on Krakow, Poland, in July for World Youth Day, an international gathering for Catholic youth. Through "Pilgrimage," a Bible engagement app that launched at the event, both event attendees and American youth who were unable to travel to Poland could engage Scripture passages with friends, view 360-degree video from World Youth Day and track their Bible-reading progress.
"The Pilgrimage app gives youth and young adults multiple ways to engage the Scriptures," says American Bible Society's Senior Manager of Catholic Initiatives Mike Carotta. The primary function of the app, Carotta explains, is to help young disciples stay rooted in God's Word long after World Youth Day is over. "It's a groundbreaking effort," he says.
Thanks to the support of our faithful financial partners, American Bible Society has been engaging people with the life-changing message of God’s Word for nearly 200 years.
