During World Youth Day 2023 in Lisbon, we want to welcome Redemptorist youth in three Redemptorist parishes: Damaia, Buraca, and Vend Nova. These are parishes on the outskirts of Lisbobona, very well connected with the city centre (metro, rail) and with the WYD main events. The pilgrim admission centre will be in the Damaia parish (https://www.paroquia-damaia.pt/). Our parish is also close to the airport.
A website for Redemptorist youth for WYD Lisbon 2023 has been created – https://redemptoristwyd2023.eu/.
Our youth will be registered with the Redemptorist Macro group.
To join our macro group, we ask that Provincial and Vice Provincial RYVM leaders pre-register on our site as soon as possible. The registration form is available here: https://redemptoristwyd2023.eu/registrations/.
The Parish Organizing Committee in our Damaia parish will register your local groups into the central system. Each group leader will have access to an account in the central registration system of WYD Lisbona 2023 as part of our macro group.
We plan an Alphonsian day for our group on Wednesday, August 2, 2023, at the Holy Redeemer Parish in Buraca from 15.00 to 22.00. The day’s theme will be “Let us walk with Mary in the footsteps of the Redeemer”.
The schedule includes a meeting with Fr. Rogério Gomes, CSsR, Superior General, time for common prayer and the Redemptorist Youth Festival.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about the Redemptorist Youth Meeting being organised on the occasion of World Youth Day in Lisbon; you can write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fr. Pawel Drobot, CSsR
