Register for World Youth Day – AOB Local Pilgrimage Series

Beginning in August, a World Youth Day Local Pilgrimage Series will begin for all young adults (ages 18-39) in the Archdiocese of Baltimore. The local pilgrimage is a monthly half-day spiritual formation that will be held every third Saturday of the month. It will be an opportunity to strengthen community and faith through mass, an excellent talk, adoration, opportunities for confession and opportunities to meet other young adults from within the archdiocese. We will kick off the first of the series on Saturday, Aug. 20 at the Baltimore Basilica. This monthly series will be held in a different parish leading up to World Youth Day in Lisbon, Portugal in August 2023.

If you are a young adult, we invite you to consider joining us!  For any questions, please contact Father Matt Himes at or Angelus Virata at
