World Youth Day and St. Paul and St. John Parishes
World Youth Day (WYD) is a worldwide encounter with the Pope which is typically celebrated every few years in a different country.
St. Paul and St. John parishes have a rich history attending WYD. We have missed only the WYD in Panama in 2019 – otherwise we have sent a decent sized group to every WYD stretching back to Rome in 2000! That’s 21 years of participation in this incredible life changing event! It has proven to be one of the best things we do for the youth of our community, and it energizes the parish as a whole.
In the summer of 2016, 40 young pilgrims from St. John and St. Paul parishes traveled to Krakow, Poland for World Youth Day 2016. While there, the group provided daily updates and photos – please check out the World Youth Day 2016 Blog.
