On April 21-23, 2023, the Province of the Immaculate Mother of God in Poland (Warsaw) hosted a weekend for children on the theme: “Discovering the Miraculous Medal.” the event took place at the Province’s friary in Niepokalanów Lasek, Poland.

About ninety children participated. The event was rather brief, but intense. The most important part of each day was the Mass, but time was set aside for leisure and relaxation, too. Highlights of the weekend included a movie marathon and an outdoor game during which St. Catherine Labouré “wrote letters” to the children, to teach them more about the Miraculous Medal. Later, each participant was given a Miraculous Medal. Friar Grzegorz Maria ŚWIERKOSZ led the children in a meditation to help them understand what sacramentals are and what kind of things can have a negative impact in their lives. In the evening, the children had a lot of fun taking part in games and dances.
The weekend concluded with Mass in the local chapel. The children’s parents were also present.
The children left Niepokalanów Lasek happy and looking forward to the next meeting.
