YOUCAT in Lourdes

All information about the Project, Workshops and Team

The Facts about the project

The best part of a pilgrimage is the wonderful experiences and stories you take home with you. A team of missionary disciples will accompany you on one of these enriching experiences in Lourdes: The "YOUCAT-Experience".

The collaboration between YOUCAT and the Lourdes Shrine is the response to the Motu Proprio "Sanctuarium in Ecclesia", where Pope Francis calls all places of pilgrimage to become places of new evangelization.
