Plan Now

Now in its 10th year and better than ever. Plan today to join us on April 13, 2019 for the CYM Pilgrimage. We hope to gather one thousand youth, young adults, and families as we walk the city streets of Wilmington with Bishop Malooly, carrying the Pilgrimage Cross from parish to parish. Plans include opening prayer and entertainment at 10:30 am by speaker and musician, Ben Walther, stop by St. Francis Hospital for a special blessing of the patients, the chance to celebrate Reconciliation, to kneel before the Blessed Sacrament, experience the Stations of the Cross, and return to St. Elizabeth for 5:00 Mass.

Long sleeve t-shirts can be purchased through the CYM office to wear during the Pilgrimage.

The Youth Leadership Team will be wearing the same shirt the day of the Pilgrimage but in a different color. Shirts will need to be picked up at the CYM Office in Wilmington or they can be picked up at registration the morning of the Pilgrimage. Click here to order your shirts.
