World Youth Day 2023 in Lisbon

9-Day Pilgrimage to Portugal | July 30–August 7, 2023


My dear brothers and sisters of the Archdiocese of New York:

We invite you to join us at Word Youth Day (WYD) 2023 in Lisbon, Portugal!

World Youth Day 2023 LisbonWYD is an opportunity for young people throughout the world to gather and experience the transformative power of our Catholic faith.

We have had the opportunity to attend past WYD pilgrimages and have witnessed firsthand the powerful effect it has had on our young people.

Our days will include coming together in prayer and catechesis, visiting the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima and other pilgrimages as well as stations of the cross, adoration and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass led by Pope Francis himself! You will get to meet other people and truly experience the universality of our Church. If you are up for an adventure of a lifetime, come and join us on this pilgrimage and grow in faith with fellow young adults, priests and other spiritual leaders.

In preparation for WYD 2023, I encourage you to pray with 2023’s theme, “Mary arose and went with haste” (Lk 1:39). Pope Francis is challenging us to be bold in our faith. Jesus is calling you to trust and follow Him! If you feel He is calling you and are up for the challenge, come and join us. We look forward to seeing you in Lisbon!
