The Asian Youth Day (AYD) is the coming together of Catholic youths from different Asian countries. This weeklong life experience enables young people to gather in formation programs and plan their future spiritual lives. At the same time, the gathering aims to provide an opportunity for Catholic youths to explore and renew their faith, so that they can share the Gospel with others through the work of justice and peace. The AYD also includes the sharing of faith with other religious groups.

The Episcopal Commission on Youth is happy to extend the invitation of the Office of Laity and Family of the Federation of Asian Bishops’ Conferences to the Sixth Asian Youth Day, with the theme Asian Youth! Wake Up! The Glory of the Martyrs shines on you.
