Effects of World Youth Days and Australian Catholic Youth Festivals - A Paper by Bishop Anthony Fisher

Last edited 13th August 2014

Since around 2000 and especially since the World Youth Day (WYD) in Sydney in 2008, the Church in Australia has put a lot of energy into promoting the attendance of young people at the WYDs held internationally every three years. Australia has also now begun its own cycle of national events (the Australian Catholic Youth Festivals or ACYFs), also slated to occur every three years and modelled substantially on WYD.

Memories of WYD2013 One Year On - "Lord I Need You"

Last edited 30th July 2014

Exactly one year ago, pilgrims were begging to depart from Rio de Janeiro at the close of an incredible World Youth Day week. Perhaps one of the most beautiful and moving moments of the whole week was American singer Matt Maher singing "Lord I Need You" as Pope Francis prayed on his knees before the Blessed Sacrament at Copacabana Beach. As we celebrate one year since WYD2013, re-live this incredible moment in this video!

What Does the World Youth Day 2016 Logo Mean?

Last edited 22nd July 2014

The logo for WYD Krakow 2016 is enclosed in the outline of Poland. In its center there is a cross which represents Jesus Christ who is the centre of the meeting. Yellow circle marks Krakow on the map of Poland and also represents the youth. The spark of the Divine Mercy flows out of the cross, its shape and color refer to the painting 'Jesus I Trust In You'.
