WYD Poland Registration

The Auckland Diocese is pleased to offer two pilgrimage options for WYD Poland 2016:



Please note that these are indicative itineraries which will be confirmed/finalised early in 2016.  More detailed information is also available on the Harvest Pilgrimages website at:  www.wydtours.com.

Eligibility Criteria – The above pilgrimages are open to applicants aged 18-35 years of age, who belong to, or have an association with the Diocese of Auckland and meet the standard group eligibility criteria.  Young people aged 16 and 17 may apply.  These applicants will need to (a) satisfactorily complete an application process to ensure that they have a maturity to participate fully in the pilgrimage and (b) have a chaperone aged 25 or older.  A family group option is available for families travelling with people under the age of 18 and people over the age of 35 are most welcome.  Applications from other Dioceses will be considered in consultation with the relevant Youth and Young Adult Ministry Office staff.  

Registration comprises a two-step process: 

  • Register an expression of interest and send this (together with referee form(s)) to the WYD Coordinator (joeyb@cda.org.nz).  Once your expression of interest has been received and the WYD Coordinator has confirmed that your application meets the entry criteria you may register.


  • Register with Harvest Pilgrimages at www.wydtours.com. Payment of an NZ$600 non-refundable deposit is required at the time of registration.   Registrations will be taken until approximately mid-March 2016 or until the places on each of the two pilgrimages have been filled (whichever is the earlier).
