Last year we experienced the first every Diocesan Youth Pilgrimage to Medjugorje which took place last April 2023.  Twenty TY students and their teachers spent a week away where they experienced Faith, Fun and Food!   This year the Pilgrimage will be open to 30 TY students with 3 spaces for teachers to travel free.  The dates set for this year is the 24th to the 30th of April.  Costs are in the region of €850 per person but fundraising is encouraged and the Diocese also seeks sponsorship for same.  Last year each person travelling paid €450 as a result!

These are some of the comments by our young people who travelled with us last year:

I feel it made a big impact on me.  I made new friendships and I feel more peaceful.

I never though I would experience something like this but when I first heard about it I knew I couldn’t miss it and I’m glad I didn’t.

An absolutely unforgettable experience and I hope you can help more people experience it.

One of the most memorable weeks of my life, it will stay with me forever.

The whole trip was such a special experience, it is so difficult to try and pick only one highlight.

I genuinely had the best week of my life.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to make new friends, become closer to firends and getting back in touch with my faith.
