All young adults of the Diocese of Tulsa are invited to Lisbon for World Youth Day with Pope Francis and millions of other young adults from around the world. A tentative schedule and itinerary are available below*.
For more information or to sign up, please e-mail or call us!
The purpose of World Youth Day is three-fold:
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Date: The Vatican has not yet announced the exact dates of World Youth Day 2023. At this time, it is believed to be around the first week of August.
Age: To participate in this pilgrimage, you must be at least 18 years old by July 1, 2023, and at most 39 years old. The only exception to this is parish youth coordinators.
Cost: We are able to determine the exact cost at this time due to uncertainty in airfares. The cost per person will be released between $3500 and $4500 including food, land & air transportation, lodging and World Youth Day activities. We recommend participants also have at least 200 Euros for the trip as well.
Payment Plan (All Payments are NON-Refundable)
Payments may be submitted more frequently in smaller denominations. Please make payments payable to Diocese of Tulsa, mailed to the attention of the Youth Office-WYD. Any and all funds received will be applied to outstanding balances and receipts emailed immediately.
Scholarships/Fundraising: Unfortunately, we are unable to do so on a diocesan level. If you need financial assistance ideas, please let us know and we will be glad to give you ideas.
Excused Absences: The pilgrim is responsible for speaking with their professors and/or employers in order to secure excused absences. The Diocese is NOT responsible for excused absence requests.
Questions?: Call or email the Youth Office. We would be glad to visit with you! Registration is NOW open!
Parish Leaders: If you would like further details and/or a presentation for your high school youth or college students, please let us know! We would love to share our experiences at World Youth Day in Krakow in 2016 for a glimpse into what to expect for Lisbon 2023.
