World Youth Day 2023

On this Feast of the Transfiguration Pope Francis celebrates the concluding W.Y.D. Mass for the estimated over one million gathered in Lisbon. “Lord,” Peter said, “it is wonderful for us to be here!”

 

Forty-four young pilgrims from the Diocese of Meath together with Bishop Tom, have participated in this past week’s programme of events including the Rise Up Encounters, a series of talks, discussions, prayer and reflections.

 

They have attended a variety of cultural, religious and festival events to celebrate the joy of this global gathering of young Catholics.

 

Pope Francis has presided over the Welcome Ceremony, The Way of the Cross and over the weekend the Prayer Vigil and now the W.Y.D. Mass this Sunday morning. At the end of this W.Y.D. Mass Pope Francis will bless the youth for the ongoing Mission which we all share as the witnesses to Christ, under the protection of Our Lady of Fatima.
