About the Day
Bishop Peter J. Jugis invites middle and high school youth to join him at Belmont Abbey College for a day of prayer and adoration of our Eucharistic Lord. The Bishop’s Youth Pilgrimage is graciously hosted by Belmont Abbey College and Monastery and provides youth with an experience of the Catholic faith with uplifting music and dynamic speakers. The Youth Pilgrimage is the perfect opportunity to prepare the way for the Eucharistic Congress in the fall.
The Bishop’s Youth Pilgrimage takes place rain or shine! In case of inclement weather, all youth groups are directed to go to the Wheeler Center.
