Archbishop Nelson Pérez will lead a group of pilgrims from the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to World Youth Day in Lisbon, Portugal, from July 30 to August 7, which will include a trip to Fatima.
Some 79 young adults will be going as part of the Young Adult Missionary Discipleship Initiative (YAMDI), organized by the archdiocesan Office of Ministry with Young Adults. They will join millions of other youth and young adults from around the world.
Faithful can ask pilgrims to pray for their special intentions by submitting their intentions to the Office of Ministry with Young Adults by visiting phillyyam.org/intentions. All prayer intentions will be brought to the shrine of Our Lady of Fatima.
