But that is not all that will be flowing at this Coffee House: many graces will flow as well.  Mass, confession and spiritual direction will be available, and Eucharistic Adoration for Vocations will be attended by thousands.  Not your typical Coffee House you say?  The Coffee House at World Youth Day in Cologne, Germany, is unique to say the least! It has all the features of the website, “live and in color!”  Youth can grab an affordable bite to eat, check email, listen to the best in live Catholic entertainment and hear great testimonies from Cardinals, Bishops, priests and consecrated men and women who have answered God’s call.
