For Group Leaders

World Youth Day
Seoul 2027

Summer 2027

Take your group on a life-changing trip to World Youth Day in beautiful Seoul, South Korea. Our comprehensive travel package, combined with expert travel leadership and spiritual direction, means you can have a singular focus on your ministry.  

Expert-Led, Spiritually Rich: Make the Most of Your Group’s WYD Experience

When it comes to World Youth Day, just getting there is not enough. The travel logistics, hotel selections, guides, and planning all make a huge difference in your WYD experience!

With past WYD experience, and as experts in Catholic pilgrimage, we know what it takes to make a trip truly exceptional. It’s why we travel to the host site multiple times in advance, select the best hotels that will put your group in the heart of the action, and offer dedicated guides for the trip.

Most of all, our entire mission is to minister to group leaders like you. It’s why we call ourselves a ministry, not a pilgrimage company! We want to enable you and your group to grow closer to God through every experience.
