World Youth Day

World Youth Day LISBON 2023- Home Page

Parishes and Individuals are now invited to register their interest in either attending WYD Lisbon or organising a parish group to participate. Over the past year many parishes and people have noted in submissions for the Task Force and also preparatory meetings on Synod the importance of reaching out to younger people.

World Youth Day will take place August 1 to 6 in Lisbon 2023. Package options and costs are still being determined and the registration system will open in September. At present it is intended to have the option for teenagers aged 16-18 to participate as well as those aged 18-29. 

The Archdiocese of Dublin has a great tradition in participation at World Youth Day. This is a great opportunity to reach out to young people and connect them to young people in many parishes that will participate at WYD. A full pastoral programme for all pilgrims will also commence later in the year, with opportunities for leadership roles as well. Use the links below to find out more about WYD Lisbon.

Get in touch and keep in touch

  • Parishes are now invited register their interest – providing information if possible on numbers and maybe local leaders also
  • Individuals can also use this system to register their interest
  • Groups (Schools, Third Level Chaplaincy, Faith groups) – can also use this system
