World Youth Day 2023

World Youth Day (WYD) is the gathering of young people from all over the world with Pope Francis.

It is a pilgrimage, a celebration of youth, an expression of the universal Church, and an intense moment of evangelization for the world.

Join fellow Catholics from the Archdiocese of Seattle this summer, including Fr. Justin Ryan, Director of Vocations, and several seminarians from our archdiocese!
