International Eucharistic Congress
World Meeting of Families
World Youth Day
The selection of Portugal for the site of the next World Youth Day was a welcome choice for the worldwide event that would gather catholic youth from around the world in the summer of 2022. However, with the moving of other international events, it was decided that World Youth Day should be moved back, as well. So, it was announced by the Vatican earlier this year, to move the event to 2023. Since the event centers of youth, this extra year of planning and preparations should yield great returns for the church. The draw of Portugal should be great, with optional visits to sites throughout the country and, possibly, into Spain. It is unclear, at this time, if Fatima will be included as an official WYD23 site, but we will work with every group leader traveling with Faith Journeys to incorporate it and any other sites they wish to visit while attending World Youth Day – Portugal.
