What is World Youth Day?

Saint Pope John Paul II announced the institution of World Youth Day in December of 1985, as an annual gathering of youth and young adults for prayer, worship, and celebration of the Catholic faith. 

The event is observed annually in dioceses and every two to three years at an international gathering. 

What's next?

In light of COVID-19, The Holy Father has moved the date of the next World Youth Day to August, 2023. The Archdiocese of Regina Young Adult Office will be facilitating a pilgrimage experience for young adults in our diocese who are interested. Informational meetings will be held around the archdiocese starting in the fall of 2021.
