Youth & Young Adult

Pilgrimage Program

Verso Ministries’ Youth & Young Adult Pilgrimage Program invites young people into an empowering adventure of faith and culture and a community of peers passionate about discovering God’s call in their lives. There’s a whole world waiting to be explored, a world abounding opportunities to encounter God at work among us. In the spirit of Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati, join us as we journey “to the heights” and be transformed by the people, places, and stories you’ll encounter along the way.

Explore the world

We believe everything is sacred. Step out of your comfort zone and into an adventure that seamlessly integrates faith, history, and culture. Explore new cities, marvel at holy sites, taste incredible cuisine, and embrace the fullness of the world God has created. As Pope Saint John Paul II reminds us, “Life with Christ is a wonderful adventure.”

Encounter the Universal Church

Pilgrimage draws us into unity with the global Church through the cultures and traditions of Catholics around the world. Go beyond your everyday experiences of faith, discover the beautiful diversity of the people of God, and encounter Christ in ways you never previously imagined.

Expand your community

Journey with a community of fellow young people seeking to deepen their faith and discover what God has in store for them. Everyone has a place on this pilgrimage because we all have something to learn from each other. Pray together, explore together, and support each other as you discern God’s call for your life and navigate what it means to live as a disciple of Christ.

Two handcrafted tracks

Catholic pilgrimages with two tracks specifically designed with youth and young adults in mind. Dive into ancient history, connect with the Catholic faith in a whole new way, and enjoy  activities designed just for young people—think heart-to-heart conversations, epic adventures, and moments that’ll light up your soul. This program offers unforgettable pilgrimages where faith meets fun and leaves pilgrims with memories to treasure!
