Firstly, to join a pilgrimage, you will need to complete your ‘expression of interest’ form on our Register Now page. The Register button can be found at the top of this page.
You will be sent a confirmation email once you have registered. Your ‘Expression of Interest’ form will then be sent to the official Pilgrim Coordinator for your chosen Diocese/Group/Movement.
The Pilgrim Coordinator will then contact you, to discuss their Diocese/Group/Movement’s validation process
The validation process can take some time depending on each Diocese/Group/Movement’s validation process and where their pilgrimage is at in the planning stages. If you would like to contact your Pilgrim Coordinator, their contact details can be found under the Pilgrimages page on our website.
Once you have been validated to travel by your Pilgrimage Coordinator, you will receive a confirmation email from Cosmos.
Once you are validated by your Pilgrimage Coordinator, Cosmos will send regular email updates to keep you informed about Panama and all things to do with your pilgrimage. To make sure our emails don’t go to your junk or spam folder, please save our email address firstname.lastname@example.org to your contact list.
Once you are validated, keep an eye on your inbox as you will receive updates about your pilgrimage and WYD, and you will be notified once your pilgrimage is ready to book.
The Diocese/Group/Movement you have registered under will contact you and validate your request to travel World Youth Day. Once validated you will receive an email from the Cosmos WYD Team to set up your My WYD Account and book your pilgrimage.
