WYD Lisbon Commissioning Mass at Sagrada Família - WYD Lisbon Commissioning Mass at Sagrada Família
On 9 July, a commissioning mass was held at the Basilica of the Sagrada Família for the WYD (World Youth Day) in Lisbon. The event was led by Cardinal Joan Josep Omella i Omella, Mons. David Abadias and Mons. Javier Vilanova, Auxiliary Bishops of Barcelona, and a thousand people attended.
The pilgrimage to Lisbon is an integral part of this experience, as it is an internal and external journey towards the encounter with the Christian faith. Over the 1,276 km and 40 days on the road, the young people will immerse themselves in prayer.
