The Pope invites young people from all over the world to attend and celebrate together at World Youth Day (WYD). WYD is six days of fun, prayer, catechetical sessions, informal gatherings, and festival events plus a vigil and concluding mass with the Pope. This gathering is held every three years at an international location.
The next international World Youth Day will be held in Lisbon, Portugal 2023! The Catholic Diocese of Cleveland pilgrimage package for WYD Portugal 2023 will be arranged by the Office of Young Adult Ministry. Those details will be set soon after the dates for WYD Portugal 2023 are announced. For those interested in attending WYD Portugal 2023, please contact Mike Hayes, Director of Young Adult Ministry.

Our tour partner, Franciscan Spirit Tours will be providing details on these packages in June 2021.
