To be held in August next year, World Youth Day is the gathering of young people from around the world with the Pope.

It is a celebration of youth, the universal Church and evangelisation.

Prior to the global event, Bishop Anthony will lead a group of students and young adults on a pilgrimage through Italy in July to some of the holiest sites and homes of our saints.

The group will visit Venice, Padova, Ravenna, Bologna, Florence, Siena, Assisi, Cascia and St Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City and Rome before flying to Lisbon in Portugal.

“The theme for WYD23 is ‘Mary arose and went with haste’ (Luke1:39) and I implore all our pilgrims who join me to be filled with the same excitement and wonder for their own encounter with Christ and His Church as we journey to Lisbon, “Bishop Anthony said.

“I am very much looking forward to leading a group of enthusiastic, passionate young people from our Diocese to a number of holy sites in Italy, onto Lisbon and then to Fatima for a retreat. It will be a truly memorable experience.”.........see full article in bulletin or go to the WYD Website
