Youth, College Students, and Young Adults from the Diocese of Tulsa have the opportunity of a lifetime. For Holy Week, 2020, a group of pilgrims will travel to Rome, Italy, and celebrate the liturgies of Holy Week with His Holiness, Pope Francis.  Pilgrims will also get to see the cradle of Western Civilization, exploring the seat of the Ancient Roman Empire, the Holy Roman Empire, and the birthplace of the art, science, and architecture that came with the Renaissance.  In addition, pilgrims will walk, crawl, and pray where the Apostles, and even Jesus Christ walked the earth almost 2000 years ago (thanks to Constantine moving WHOLE buildings to Rome from Jerusalem).

Check back at this website for regular updates.


When is the pilgrimage?

  • We depart (tentatively) from Tulsa International Airport on Friday, April 3, 2020, and arrive back in Tulsa Monday night, April 13.

What is the total Cost?

  • We are able to determine the range of the cost at this point, due to uncertainty in airfares.  The cost is tentatively set at $2899 per person.  That includes food, airfare, and lodging.  We recommend that participants also have at least 200 Euros for the trip as well.

I have school and/or classes the week of the trip.  What do I do?

  • It is the responsibility of each participant in the pilgrimage to speak with their principals, guidance counselors, teachers and/or professors in order to have the absences excused.

Will the Diocese of Tulsa offer scholarship opportunities or fundraising?

  • Unfortunately, we are unable to do so. 

If we pay extra, can I get a triple/double/single room?

  • Triple or quad accommodations are the best we can do at this point for those going on the trip.  Single rooms are available for a fee of $650.00 in addition to the full cost.   

What is the age range of participants?

  • To participate in this pilgrimage, you must be at least 16 years old, and at most 29 years old.  The only exception to this is parish youth coordinators. 

I am not in that age range, and I’m not a parish youth coordinator.  May I go along, too?

  • Many parents, relatives, and other adults have wanted to go on the pilgrimage as well, but unfortunately, this pilgrimage is for those aged 16-29.  The Diocese is exploring offering a Holy Week pilgrimage for only adults in the future, so there may be another opportunity.

I am a pilgrim with questions about the trip. What do I need to do?

  • Call or email the Youth Office. We would be glad to visit with you!
