When is Diocesan Youth Day?

Diocesan Youth Day is on Saturday, October 24, 2020 at LOCATION TBD. 

What is Diocesan Youth Day?

On Palm Sunday in 1984, the first international meeting of youth was held in St. Peter’s Square. This started the tradition of world (World Youth Day) and diocesan gatherings. Each year, the Holy Father announces the theme for World Youth Days. Dioceses are invited to celebrate young people locally on the years that there is no international celebration, hence, the creation of our local Diocesan Youth Day (DYD).

Diocesan Youth Day offers young people a vivid experience of faith and communion. The principal objective of this event is to make the person of Jesus the center of the faith and life of every young person so that He may be their constant point of reference and also the inspiration of every initiative and commitment they make in their life – so they can be “Witnesses to Jesus”. 

The schedule includes keynote presentations, breakout sessions, mixers, prayer, liturgy, and a ministry and vocations fair.  We also have a track specifically designed for parents and adults who work with youth.

Diocesan Youth Day is sponsored by the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry, with funding from the Hawaii Catholic Community Foundation.
