Holy Week in Rome Pilgrimage

Ages 16-29 & Chaperones

Youth, college students, and young adults from the Diocese of Tulsa & Eastern Oklahoma have the opportunity of a lifetime. A group of pilgrims will travel to Rome and celebrate the liturgies of Holy Week with His Holiness, Pope Francis, for Holy Week 2020. Pilgrims will also see the cradle of Western Civilization, exploring the seat of the Ancient Roman Empire, the Holy Roman Empire, and the birthplace of the art, science, and architecture that came with the Renaissance. In addition, pilgrims will walk, crawl, and pray where the Apostles, and even Jesus Christ walked the earth almost 2000 years ago (thanks to Constantine moving WHOLE buildings to Rome from Jerusalem).


Date: We depart (tentatively) from Tulsa International Airport on Friday, April 3, 2020, and arrive back in Tulsa Monday night, April 13.

Age: To participate in this pilgrimage, you must be at least 16 years old, and at most 29 years old. The only exception to this is parish youth coordinators. 

Many parents, relatives, and other adults have wanted to go on the pilgrimage as well, but unfortunately, this pilgrimage is for those aged 16-29. The Diocese is exploring offering a Holy Week pilgrimage for only adults in the future, so there may be another opportunity.

Cost: We are able to determine the range of the cost at this point, due to uncertainty in airfares. The cost is tentatively set at $3299 per person. That includes food, airfare, and lodging. We recommend that participants also have at least 200 Euros for the trip as well.
