United States Activities at World Youth Day 2016

The challenges all around us are nearly overwhelming. They can be less daunting when we face them together. The images and words of that World Youth Day [Denver 1993] stay with me today. The lessons are simple, if we stand confident in our faith and speak it with love our voice can be heard and our message accepted.  Together we can all grow more deeply in our love of the Lord.

Many countries try to organize an official presence for their respective pilgrims at the WYD grounds. During World Youth Day 2016, the WYDUSA Office hosted two national gatherings. We will be posting photos from these gatherings soon.
