Now is the time to invite your children, grandchildren, and other Catholic sophomores and juniors in high school, whom you recommend to consider taking part in the Summer Teen Pilgrimage to Lourdes! Applications will be available online beginning January 8, 2024.
The Western Association’s 2024 Summer Teen Pilgrimage will take place from July 2 -10, 2024. Up to 16 young adults (ages 16-18) and 8 adult chaperones, including a Chaplain, will depart from the Los Angeles Airport LAX on July 2 and return on July 10, 2024.
The cost is $3,400 per person, including round-trip airfare (Los Angeles-Lourdes), all lodging (double occupancy), food and local transportation expenses, as well as the pilgrimage uniforms.
Participation in this Pilgrimage is by application and subject to review and approval by the Summer Teen Pilgrimage Selection Committee.
This is a very special trip designed for service, spiritual growth, and fun making friends! None of the students who make this pilgrimage will return unchanged after having served the sick and elderly at the Domaine, encountered the Blessed Mother in prayer at the Grotto, and received the Body and Blood of Christ in the Eucharist.
We also invited select Knight and Dame chaperones to take part in this physically demanding pilgrimage. Keeping up with teenagers is not easy, but it is rewarding and will assure that the future of the Catholic Church is bright.
Please pray for the success of this pilgrimage and our young pilgrims.
