World Youth Day 2016

 


World Youth Day (WYD) is an event for young people organised by the Roman Catholic Church. WYD was initiated by Pope John Paul II in the mid 1980s. It is the largest religious gathering in the world and it celebrates the youth and future of the Catholic Church.

It occurs every 2-3 years and has been celebrated in places such as Argentina, Spain, Poland, USA, Philippines, France, Rome, Canada, Germany, Australia and Brazil. World Youth Days are an international pilgrimage experience – a journey of faith and spiritual development.

The next WYD will be held in Krakow, Poland in July-August 2016.

WYD Krakow 2016 was launched with student eligible to apply (those currently in Years 9 or 10) here at Clancy on 31 March.

Students that are interested in applying for World Youth Day Krakow 2016 can apply for one of three following pilgrimages:

  • Holy Land/Poland
  • Saints of Italy/Poland
  • WYD Direct

All WYD Pilgrimages include the WYD week in Krakow, Poland as well as a day trip to Auschwitz concentration camp and a post-WYD retreat in Zakopane in mountainous southern Poland. Please view the presentation below to see more details about the WYD pilgrimages.

WYD Krakow 2016 promises to be a life-changing spiritual pilgrimage and a vibrant celebration of the youth of the Catholic Church.
