A statement from the archdiocese noted, “World Youth Day is an event of a global and open nature — of Christian identity — promoted directly by the Pope, which invites young people from around the world, both Catholics as well as non-Catholics interested in knowing the message of Jesus Christ and having an experience of the Catholic Church.”
