Papa Palooza is like “an old-fashioned family picnic”

The excitement around the upcoming World Meeting of Families in August won't just be limited to crowds in Dublin, Ireland. On Saturday, July 28, the archdiocesan Office of Laity and Family Life will bring the festivities to St. Louis, hosting the second-ever "Papa Palooza."

"I think the greatest part about it is the fact that it brings families together," said Julie Bostick, executive director of the Office of Laity and Family Life.

The first Papa Palooza, in 2015, celebrated Pope Francis' visit to the U.S. for the world meeting in Philadelphia that year.
