World Youth Day is a family affair for the young pilgrims from St. Dominic Savio Parish in Edmonton. "Just over half the group is related to me, one way or another," said Kiara Smyth, 23, a leader of the group of 13 heading to this year's pilgrimage in Kraków, Poland. "I've got a big family." Spending time with her friends and relatives as they gear up for this year's WYD has been nice, said Smyth. But some young Catholics feel alone in their faith.
