World Youth Day (WYD) takes place every two to three years to celebrate the unity, joy, and spirit of young Catholics. The goals of World Youth Day are to:
1. Put trust in the youth: WYD is a reminder of the energy that young people can bring to the Church;
2. Gather together: World Youth Day brings the world’s youth together as one community, in solidarity;
3. Meet the international world on a human level: World Youth Day encourages participants to see everyone in the human family as sisters and brothers made in the image of God, with human dignity and human rights.
