Events, Retreats, and Pilgrimages
Diocesan World Youth Day 2022
This event has been cancelled for 2022.
Our annual, local World Youth Day experience offering young men and women grades 9-12 a fun and faith-filled retreat. The young Church will encounter the contagious enthusiasm of following Christ from faith-filled priests, seminarians, religious, youth, and youth leaders from our diocese. Join us August 6, 2022 in Fort Wayne!
March for Life
Due to the overturning of Roe vs. Wade, the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend will not be attending the March for Life in January of 2023. Instead, we are encouraging our youth, families, and communities to support mothers and unborn children through the Walking with Mom’s in Need initiative.
