World Youth Day (WYD) is a worldwide encounter with the Pope which is typically celebrated every three years in a different country. The next World Youth Day will be held in Panama City, Panama from January 22nd to 27th, 2019.
WYD is open to all young people 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 is a unique way to deepen your faith and grow closer to Christ, by means of prayer and the sacraments, together with thousands of other young people who share your interests and ambitions.
