What is World Youth Day?

World Youth Day (WYD) is a gathering of young people from around the globe to celebrate Jesus Christ. It is a life-changing opportunity to gather, to pilgrimage, and to experience the universal Church through prayer, catechesis, and personal encounter. This year’s theme is from the first chapter of Luke: “I am the servant of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.”

When is World Youth Day?

The international celebration of WYD will occur in Seoul in 2027.
