The National World Youth Day Office, within the Secretariat for Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth at the USCCB, is developing a nationwide community of "alumni" (past participants) from the United States who attended World Youth Days, either internationally or stateside, from 1984 to the present day. 

The purpose of the WYDUSA alumni network is to build intergenerational and intercultural communities, to foster connections and collaboration with the Church and society, and to continue accompanying all generations of past participants on their lifelong pilgrimage of faith. The network seeks to accomplish this by sharing information, promoting activities and reunions, and providing opportunities for personal development and faith formation, as well as fostering relationships with the global World Youth Day family: pilgrims and alumni, bishops and leaders, families and friends.

Register for the WYDUSA Alumni Network!

For more information, contact the National WYD Office at wyd@usccb.org.  Feel free to encourage other WYDUSA alumni to engage with the Alumni Network today.
