On Sunday 7th October a group of enthusiastic people met to commence formal planning for the Young Mercy Leaders’ Pilgrimage to be held in Dublin, 16th – 19th July 2013.
Many ideas were shared and suggestions offered for Keynote Speakers and Workshop Presenters, prayer sessions, entertainment, processes, etc. Sub-committees were formed and commenced work later in the day.

We hope approximately 150 participants will come from secondary schools across the world. Participants in the inaugural pilgrimage in 2011 came from Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, Great Britain and United States of America. Reports of that pilgrimage can be accessed here.
We would be delighted to hear from anyone who has a suggestion or who would like to offer/donate a service or talent.
Expressions of Interest in the pilgrimage will be called for shortly, however, you are welcome to make contact by email with Mary Kay Dobrovolny rsm.
Early registration is encouraged and the very last day for registration will be Friday 29th March, 2013.
