Diocesan World Youth Day is an annual World Youth Day experience offering young men and women grades 9-12 a fun and faith-filled retreat weekend. Parish groups and individual students alike are welcome to attend. The weekend includes activities, games, and small groups as well as national speakers, daily Mass, and Confession. Our “Little” WYD has plenty of time for heartfelt singing and celebrating with praise and worship music lead by local youth ministers. Our Diocesan celebration concludes with a WYD Mass celebrated by Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades on Sunday Morning. Youth and chaperones are welcome to spend the night at the host high school in separate sleeping quarters.


Diocesan WYD Theme: "Young man, I say to you arise."
