World Youth Day in Lisbon

The adventure of a lifetime for some of our young people is about to begin as they take part in World Youth Day in Lisbon 1-6 August. The global event takes place every few years and was initiated by Saint John Paul II in 1986. Right from the beginning of his pontificate, Saint John Paul said to young people, 'You are my hope'. A group of 82 pilgrims led by His Grace, Archbishop Bernard Longley, will be representing the Archdiocese of Birmingham in Lisbon. You can follow the pilgrimage via the Kenelm Youth Trust's social media channels and via Shalom TV
