Journey with us to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, July 23-28, 2013
WYD 2013 | "Go and make disciples of all nations" (Mt 28:19)
Next year, World Youth Day will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where youth pilgrims from all parts of the world will join together in a weeklong spiritual journey to share their faith.
The week includes prayer, song, concerts, drama, sharing, liturgy, catechesis and an unforgettable vigil and closing Mass with the Holy Father.
In 1984, Pope John Paul II invited young people from all over the world to participate in a pilgrimage at the very first World Youth Day.
Since then, it has been held in Argentina ('87), Spain ('89), Poland ('91), U.S. ('93), Philippines ('95), France ('97), Italy ('00), Canada ('02), Germany ('05), Australia ('08) and Spain ('11).
WYD is an invitation from the pope to the youth of the world, ages 18-34, to celebrate their faith around a particular theme. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Read the official prayer.
