1What is World Youth Day?
World Youth Day (WYD) is a worldwide encounter with the Pope celebrated about every three years in a different country. The most recent WYD was celebrated in Panama City, Panamá from January 22-27, 2019 and the next World Youth Day will be held in Lisbon, Portugal in 2024.
2What is the purpose of WYD?
This event is an opportunity to personally experience the universality of the Catholic Church, and to share with the whole world the hope of many young people who are committing their lives to Christ and His Church. World Youth Day is a unique way to deepen your faith and grow closer to Christ, through prayer and the sacraments, together with hundreds of thousands of other young people who share your interests and ambitions.
3Who can attend WYD?
WYD is open to all young people between 16 and 35 years old who want to take part in a festive encounter centered on Jesus Christ together with their peers.
4How do I sign up for WYD?
First, please register with the CMYA by signing up on this page. You will receive a confirmation email in the next few days, along with a link to register with Youth Mission and pay a non-refundable $750 deposit.
5Can I sign up for another package than this one?
For those who live in Montreal, Mission Jeunesse offers several other packages on its website. You can choose the one that suits you best. However, you should know that in this case, you will be part of another group than ours, because the package that the CMYA offers you is exclusive to our Eparchy. If you live outside of Montreal, please contact your local Diocese to find out what packages are available.
