World Youth Day 2023

World Youth Day is a worldwide encounter with the Pope which is typically celebrated every three years in a different country.

World Youth Day is open to all young people who want to take part in a festive encounter with their contemporaries centred on Jesus Christ.  This event is an opportunity to experience in person the universality of the Church; to share with the whole world the hope of many young people who want to commit themselves to Christ and others.  World Youth Day is a unique way to deepen your faith and grow closer to Christ, by means of prayer and the sacraments, together with thousands of other young people who share your interests and ambitions.  During the week of World Youth Day, there will be youth festival programming in addition to the main events with the Pope.

We are exploring a number of options and are hopeful that we will be able to offer the following pilgrimage to World Youth Day 2023.

Date: Monday 31st July 2023 – Tuesday 8th of August 2023

Location: Lisbon and Fatima, Portugal

Cost: £1,200 per pilgrim (estimated)

  • 6-nights bed and breakfast in Lisbon, 2-nights half board in Fatima.
  • Travel to, from and within Portugal.
  • Opportunities for formation before and after World Youth Day.
  • T-shirts and support of a dedicated pilgrimage operator.

It is not possible yet to give a definitive summary or provide an overall cost of the pilgrimage we hope to offer to World Youth Day.  Flights for 2023 departures dates have not been released and we cannot register for World Youth Day yet and are unsure of what this might cost.

More details as they become available will be shared with you on this page and across our social media feeds.
