World Youth Day 2023

What is World Youth Day?

World Youth Day is a celebration of Young People held every three years in different locations around the world! This pilgrimage gives young people the opportunity to have an encounter with the universality of the Catholic Church and to be with the Pope for a week of catechesis, liturgy, song, talks, and so much more!

Please consider joining our diocesan pilgrimage to Lisbon in 2023!
