World Youth Day was instituted by St. John Paul II on Palm Sunday 1985 as an opportunity for the youth of the world to come together as a community and experience the life of the Church.  World Youth Day takes place each year on Palm Sunday in the various dioceses throughout the world, but approximately every three years the youth of the world gather in a single city selected by the Pope.  The 39th World Youth Day and 16th international gathering will take place in the city of Seoul, South Korea.  MORE DETAILS TO COME.

The Office for Youth and Young Adults serves as a support and resource pool for youth ministry and young adult ministry across the diocese.  Please contact the Director for Youth and Young Adults to find out what we can do for you, if you have any questions, or for more information.  Listed below are some excellent resources and sites you can look at as well.
