WYD 2023

World Youth Day: Lisbon

All young adults, aged 18-29, 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: 

  1. Putting Trust in the Young
    World Youth Day brings together young adults from the four corners of the world as a strong reminder of the strength and confidence the young contribute to the Church today.
  2. Gathering Together
    World Youth Day is not simply a gathering for the young people of the world, but a time to put trust in the world's youth, a calling for the world's youth to come together as one people.
  3. Meeting the International World on a Human Level
    It is still a marvel in this the 21st Century to exchange with others and to be a part of an international experience. International events are stir much hope but also many fears (increase in fundamentalism, nationalism and other new conflicts). The Church and Christians themselves have a role to play in preventing the development of these fears, and aid each person in finding their way and discovering hope.

*As of April 2020, World Youth Day activities have been delayed a year. 

A pay schedule for WYD will be issued summer 2020.
