They have flocked here to celebrate the spirit of Catholicism, but piety and reverence only go so far when you're young and away from home. More than 2,000 young people from the Orange County Diocese are among the tens of thousands gathered here from around the world to celebrate World Youth Day and to glimpse Pope John Paul II.

Representatives of gay rights groups held a small but vocal protest Thursday near the site of Pope John Paul II's meeting with President Clinton, but the group was kept out of earshot of the two leaders.

Pope John Paul II announced Sunday that he will go to Denver next year for the Roman Catholic Church's World Youth Day. In an address to tens of thousands of people packing St. Peter's Square on Palm Sunday, the Pope said: "I have chosen the city of Denver, in the famous Rocky Mountains, in Colorado state, which has never been included in my previous apostolic trips." The other candidates for the Aug. 11-15, 1993, celebration were Milwaukee and Seattle. The Pope's last U.S. visit was in 1987.
