Hundreds of pilgrims from the Diocese of Brooklyn are packing for a pilgrimage.

Their destination is Lisbon, Portugal, where they will celebrate World Youth Day with Pope Francis.

The weeklong pilgrimage will help bring the youth closer to Christ.

Gabriel Roman and Victoria Lopez from St. Joseph’s Church in Astoria will be among the hundreds of thousands of pilgrims who will be attending the event.

The duo stopped by Currents News before their flight to discuss what they were looking forward to most on the trip. Be sure to tune in to Currents News and The Tablet for continuing coverage of World Youth Day.
