Sign up as a WYD DON BOSCO 23 Host Family and welcome the young Salesian pilgrims participating in WYD Lisbon 2023.
The WYD DON BOSCO 23 Host Families, connected to a Salesian presence (school, parish, other), are available to welcome young Salesian pilgrims participating in the WYD Lisbon 2023 from July 31 to August 7.
The Family must guarantee a minimum of 2 pilgrims, with comfortable sleeping conditions (no bed is necessary), daily hygiene and breakfast. It is also desirable that the family facilitate/help in transporting the pilgrim from their home to the Salesian house if necessary.
Receiving pilgrims is a way of participating in World Youth Day, welcoming Christ into your home and providing young people with the best possible experience.
Families “do this with a big heart, not just to serve, which is already a great thing, but also to open themselves up to other young people and cultures, to another way of seeing life.” (Pope Francis)
