Global Celebration of Youth & Young Adults

In November of 2020, Pope Francis called for a renewal of the celebration of World Youth Day, moving the diocesan celebration from Palm Sunday to Christ the King Sunday starting in 2021.

This celebration will allow our local churches to communicate this important pastoral message to the young on a day focused on Jesus, our Lord and King. This year, the Feast of Christ the King falls on November 25/26, 2023.

For a list of resources for celebrating the Global Celebration of Youth & Young Adults, please visit the links below. A special guidebook, released on October 1, 2021, is available through the USCCB.
