World Youth Day 2027

World Youth Day 2027

World Youth Day (WYD) is an event organized by the Catholic Church that brings together young people from around the world to celebrate their faith, share experiences, and deepen their understanding of the teachings of the Catholic Church. It was initiated by Pope John Paul II in 1985, and it typically takes place every two to three years in different locations around the world.

During World Youth Day, young Catholics participate in various activities such as Masses, prayer sessions, catechesis (religious education), cultural events, and opportunities for confession and reconciliation. The highlight of the event is when the Pope celebrates Mass with the participants.

The next World Youth Day (WYD) will be held in Seoul, South Korea.

Seoul is the dazzling capital of South Korea, a city where tradition meets innovation. As the beating heart of South Korea, Seoul captivates visitors with its vibrant street markets, where the aroma of sizzling street food fills the air, and its serene temples, where the echoes of ancient prayers mingle with the sounds of modern life.

Seoul is also home to a vibrant Catholic community, deeply rooted in the fabric of South Korean society. Although Catholicism is a minority religion in South Korea, it has a strong and growing presence, with approximately 5.8 million Catholics in the country. The Catholic Church in South Korea has a rich history dating back to the late 18th century when the first Korean Catholics were baptized.

Today, Seoul boasts numerous Catholic churches and cathedrals, each with its unique architecture and spiritual significance. From the iconic Myeongdong Cathedral, a symbol of Korean Catholicism, to the modernist architecture of the Seoul Anglican Cathedral, the city offers a variety of sacred spaces for worship and reflection.
