About World Youth Day (WYD)
Take an online pilgrimage with the Archdiocese of New York and Ascension Presents.
Mary Elise Zellmer, assistant director of Young Adult Outreach for the Archdiocese of New York is leading a group of fifty-four pilgrims to Panama for World Youth Day, and Ascension Presents is partnering with them for this exclusive series.
This pilgrimage is an opportunity for youth from around the world to have an encounter with the pope. It is celebrated every three years in a different country, and features various World Youth Day activities.
Visit Ascension Presents each day of World Youth Day week to join these pilgrims and hundreds of thousands more from across the world, spiritually and virtually.
