All About World Youth Day

Last edited 17th August 2011

World Youth Day began with John Paul II's invitation to young people in 1984 to come to Rome for Palm Sunday. More than 300,000 turned out for the celebration.The following year - 1985 - coincided with the United Nations International Year of Youth. On Palm Sunday that year, young Catholics came to Rome once again. Then on December 20th, the Pope announced the first official WYD meeting for 1986. The second international WYD gathering took place in Buenos Aires in 1987.
