WYD is a time of celebration with the Holy Father. Thousands of young people around the world come together to experience for themselves the universality of the Church through prayer and the sacraments. It is traditionally held every three years in a different country. This will be the 14th International World Youth Day since the event was inaugurated by Pope John Paul II in 1986.
