World Youth Day (WYD) 2013 will be held in Rio de Janeiro from 23 – 28 July 2013. World Youth Day is usually celebrated in a different city every 3 years and is an opportunity for the world’s youth to have an encounter with the Pope. The previous WYD was celebrated in Madrid, Spain.
The city of Rio de Janeiro is excited to host WYD this year and is yet another excellent opportunity for the Cidade Maravilhosa to showcase itself before the 2014 Football World Cup, and 2016 Olympic Games.
WYD is open to all young people who want to take part in a festive encounter with Jesus Christ. It’s a once in a lifetime event that offers an excellent opportunity to experience in first person the universality of the Church, as well as the opportunity to share with other young people who want to commit themselves to Christ and serving others. World Youth Day is a unique way to deepen your faith and grow closer to Christ, by means of prayer and the sacraments, together with thousands of other young people who share your interests and ambitions.
