Sarah Farrell, WYD Lisbon 2023 Co-Ordinator shares the latest update on preparations for this year’s World Youth Day in Lisbon…
Our WYD pilgrimage has begun! On Saturday 21st January our pilgrimage group met for the first time to begin preparing for Lisbon. We gathered at St Peter’s in Winchester, and spent some time getting to know one another, as well as diving into the theme, ‘Rise Up’, with some catechesis and discussion. We celebrated Mass together, played games and had a time of worship, adoration and prayer to end our day.
It’s not too late to join us!! We still have a few places left, so if you are aged 16 – 30, or know someone who is, and you’d like to join us for a life-changing pilgrimage to Lisbon in the summer, get in touch today! firstname.lastname@example.org
Can you help us get there? We are in need of sponsorship to help our young people get to Lisbon. If you are able to give anything, however big or small, we would be extremely grateful.
