You must be at least 16 years of age WHEN BOARDING THE PLANE IN JANUARY 2019.
If you are 14 or 15 years of age, a parent MUST accompany you on this pilgrimage.


World Youth Day is truly a pilgrimage experience. Each day will focus upon prayer, catechesis and the sacraments, with the highlight of participating in Mass with Pope Francis at the end of the week.

St. Mark parish will be joining the DIOCESAN PILGRIMAGE…since this is during the school year and not during summer, the Diocesan Youth Office is offering a LONG WEEKEND pilgrimage and a 9-day pilgrimage. See below…

THIS PILGRIMAGE IS NOW CLOSED FOR ANY ADD-ON REGISTRATIONS…PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR INFORMATION ON THE NEXT WORLD YOUTH DAY IN 2021 OR 2022.
