Pilgrimage to Portugal
Diocese of Venice in Florida
World Youth Day 2023 in Lisbon
11-Day Pilgrimage to Portugal | July 29 – August 8, 2023
Dear Youth and Young Adults of the Diocese of Venice,
Enthusiasm is building in the Diocese of Venice for World Youth Day 2023! Our WYD pilgrimage will begin at the Marian Shrine of Fatima where we will spend two days honoring Mary, Our Lady of Mercy, co-patroness of our Diocese.
In preparation for WYD 2023, let us reflect on the theme chosen by Pope Francis for World Youth Day, “Mary arose and went with haste.” (Lk 1:39). Our Holy Father is challenging all of us to be active and to live our Catholic faith boldly, unapologetically and joyfully!
On a practical note, allow me to emphasize that space is limited for our pilgrimage scheduled for next August. Peter’s Way Tours is our travel provider. They are holding space for 65 pilgrims and will process all enrollments on a first-come, first-served basis. If enrollments exceed 65 pilgrims for the 11-day trip, Peter’s Way will work to secure additional space. However, there could be fluctuation in either itinerary or cost after 65 registrations.
Please know that I entrust you and your pilgrimage, both at home and abroad, to the tender care and guidance of Our Lady of Fatima.
Sincerely in Christ,
Bishop Frank J. Dewane
Help us, Our Lady of the Visitation, to bring Christ to everyone, obeying the Father, in the love of the Spirit!
