World Youth Day is an unbelievable week-long spiritual journey where pilgrims from all over the world unite 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, Pope Francis. 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 they have been held in Argentina, Spain, Poland, US, Philippines, France, Italy, Canada, Germany, Australia, Madrid, Brazil, and Poland.
