One of the Six Retreats which Preceded our Trip (9 images)
  • Imagine doing World Youth Day without preparing spiritually! We're doing more than a trip. There is a great cultural exchange for sure, which would make the trip totally worth it; but we're going on a pilgrimage with the Pope and a million young people from all around the world, so we warm our hearts up for the adventure in the best of ways.
  • Retreats precede all our formal pilgrimages.
