Global Celebration of Young People

Celebrating Youth and Young Adults Annually on the Solemnity of Christ the King

November 25/26, 2023

In November 2020, Pope Francis called for a renewal of the global celebration of young people in the local churches in every diocese and eparchy. He also announced that, beginning in 2021, he would "transfer the diocesan celebration of World Youth Day from Palm Sunday to Christ the King Sunday."

On this feast day... the Church proclaims the Kingdom of Christ, already present, but still growing in all its mystery towards its full manifestation ... young people are indispensable bearers of the dynamics of the Kingdom of God, the hope of the Church and the world. - St. John Paul II

Annual Message

  • 2023 Message: “Rejoicing in hope” (cf. Rom 12:12)
  • 2024 Message: “Those who hope in the Lord will run and not be weary” (cf. Is 40:31)
