Preparation for WYD Lisbon 2023

In unity with the Local Organizing Committee Lisbon 2023, every 23rd of the month will be an occasion to pray for World Youth Day in Lisbon. We have started our spiritual preparation on 23 rd April, at San Damiano Mission, 21 Nassau Ave., Brooklyn.


The Catholic Community Shalom was a host of this meeting. In Rome members of this Community looks after the Cross and the Icon of Holy Mary “Salus Populi Romani” – symbols of WYD.

We were praying together for our spiritual preparation, for all young people from the Diocese of Brooklyn who will participate, and for all people who are preparing this meeting.

The next prayer will take place at San Damiano Mission on 23rd May. Time will be posted on our social media profiles:
