WYD is open to all young people (18+) who want to take part in a festive encounter with their contemporaries centered on Jesus Christ. This event is an opportunity to experience in first person the universality of the Church; to share with the whole world the hope of many young people who want to commit themselves to Christ and others.

World Youth Day (WYD) is a worldwide encounter with the Pope which is typically celebrated every three years in a different country. The most recent WYD was celebrated in Krakow, Poland from July 26th to 31st, 2016 and the next World Youth Day will be held in PANAMA in Spring, 2019.
WYD is a unique way to deepen your faith and grow closer to Christ, by means of prayer and the sacraments, together with thousands (or in most cases millions) of other young people who share your interests and ambitions.
During the week of World Youth Day, there will be a complete cultural agenda in addition to the events with the Pope. “Days in the Diocese” (aka “Mission Week”) is also a popular dynamic the week before WYD that the Circle of Life has participated in, and has thoroughly enhanced the cultural encounter that WYD provides.
Ready to experience World Youth Day for yourself? Check out our Rio2013 and Krakow2016 Promo Videos above! Only youth 18+ can attend. Anyone 16-17 can attend if their parent or guardian comes with them!
NOTE: This is an officially sanctioned pilgrimage for the Archdiocese of Louisville!
