About the WYD
What is the World Youth Day?
We've tried to capture a small sense of the World Youth Day in our video on the homepage - so make sure you watch that to get an idea of what the WYD is.
The World Youth Day is an amazing opportunity to experience something totally different - whether you are religious or not - it is an experience that you will never forget. Millions of young people coming together from every walk of life and every country on Earth.
It is not just a "Day" but it is a week-long festival. A celebration of everything the Catholic Church has to offer young people and everything young people have to offer the Church. It is an amazing atmosphere of fun, life, joy, partying, peace and love.
It's probably the biggest event you will ever go to and it's the only time you'll be in a city with the feeling that everyone is involved in the same event.
Our reason for offering trips to the World Youth Day is so we can share the experiences that we had. The World Youth Day changed our lives and that is what we want to share with you!
Pope Francis invites you, the Church invites you, we invite you - come and join us!
