Young people around the world respond to the invitation to gather, to pilgrimage and to experience the universal Church through personal encounter, prayer, worship and catechesis. What is a pilgrimage? A pilgrimage is a crossing a person makes to a holy place for the purpose of venerating it or to ask for heavenly aid, and ultimately to come to know God better. In the past, pilgrims would leave their homes, families and comforts to walk for hundreds of miles with nothing but what they could carry on their backs. Just as the pilgrims from the early centuries, modern pilgrims also leave their homes, families and comforts in order to journey to sacred places. Join the pilgrimage for World Youth Day!
