Join the Assumption Family at World Youth Day

Assumption UniversityWorld Youth Day 2023

This Summer, the Assumptionists hope to join Pope Francis and hundreds of thousands of youth in Lisbon, Portugal for World Youth Day! This is a great opportunity not only to experience the joy and hope of a life of faith but also to get to know Assumption sisters, brothers, and friends from around the world!

The pilgrimage includes visiting our Assumption family in Elche, Spain, and a visit to Fatima! Additionally, pilgrims can join tours after World Youth Day following in the footsteps of Fr. Emmanuel d’Alzon, founder of the Assumptionists, and joining the 150th Assumptionist Pilgrimage to Lourdes, France.
