The path of WYD: from Rome (1984) to Krakow (2016)

This week the Church has been in the midst of World Youth Day (WYD)! World Youth Day was established because of the creative genius of  St. John Paul II.  His special ability to perceive the needs of  young people led him to invent this unique way of bringing them closer to Jesus. During these meetings, the Pope sought to convey to young people the Gospel with language and expression that everyone understood.

The first World Youth Day in history was in 1984 in Rome, with an attendance of 300,000 young people. The second took place in in Buenos Aires in 1987.  Over a million young people attended. The next World Youth Day was in Santiago of Compostela in 1989. Then it was on to Czestochowa in 1991: 1,600,000 attended youth.  Pope Francis has announced that the next World Youth Day will take place in Panama in 2019.
