Pilgrimage to Jasna Góra

      On 17 October 2011 the student of the final classes went on a pilgrimage to Jasna Góra In Częstochowa.
Jasna Góra is the name of the hill with a famous church on it. In the church there is a miraculous picture
of the Virgin Mary worshipped all over Poland. They set off at 5.30 a.m. by coach and arrived in Kalwaria Zebrzydowska, where Pope John Paul II committed himself to Mary's care.

      After the prayers they went to Oświęcim to visit a concentration camp where millions of people had been tortured and murdered during World War the Second. Częstochowa welcomed the pilgrims late that evening
and they could kneel in front of the picture of the Black Madonna. They beseeched God and the Holy Mary
for the gifts of the Holy Spirit for the time of oncoming examinations.

      On the next day they participated in the morning mass during which the miraculous picture was uncovered. They prayed for good luck and a happy future. Later, they took part in the Way of the Cross.
After that they left for home, visiting Cracow on the way.

      They came back to Przemyśl on the 18 October after a long journey full of truthful experiences.
