The Global Celebration of Young People: Resource Guidebook

The USCCB encourages every Catholic community to set aside the Solemnity of Christ the King to participate in the Global Celebration of Young People at the local level. Whether in big ways or small, communities can celebrate, reflect upon, and acknowledge the gift that youth and young adults bring to the Church and to the world.  

To support these efforts, the USCCB has developed a special resource Guidebook for pastoral leaders.

(NOTE: This ten-page version gives a brief overview and direction for the initiative)

The English and Spanish editions of the Guidebook was prepared in consultation with a culturally diverse team of pastoral leaders accompanying young people (both youth and young adults) in parishes, dioceses, college campuses, religious communities, academic institutions, and national ministry organizations, and with the insight from the Vatican Dicastery on Laity, Family and Life.
