World Youth Day

The United States will certainly have a presence at the international World Youth Day in Portugal. 

This page will be updated with details on the U.S. involvement with and preparation for this global event.  In addition, we anticipate a number of stateside (at-home) WYD celebrations taking place across the USA. More details on those gatherings will be posted on this site.

In the meantime, future leaders and pilgrims - sign up for our Portugal 2022 e-mail newsletter!. . .

If you have further questions, please contact for more information. See also the USCCB statement encouraging young people to join the U.S. bishops in Lisbon in 2023.
