World Youth Day 2023 Pilgrimage

World Youth Day (WYD) is the gathering of young people from all over the world with the Pope. It is also a pilgrimage, a celebration of youth, an expression of the universal Church and an intense moment of evangelization for the youth world. Although its Catholic identity is clearly evident, WYD opens its doors to everyone, no matter how close to or distant from the Church they are.

It is celebrated at the diocesan level on Palm Sunday, and every two, three or four years as an international gathering in a city chosen by the Pope, with the presence of the Holy Father. It brings together millions of young people to celebrate their faith and sense of belonging to the Church.


High School students ages 16 & 17 may attend with their parish and chaperone(s).

Young Adults ages: 18 – 39 years old


Deposit: $800.00

Approximate Total Cost: $3,900.00
