The WYD Cross
The World Youth Day cross has many names: Jubilee Cross, Pilgrim Cross, and Youth Cross. It was entrusted to the youth as they were given the commission to “carry it throughout the world as a symbol of Christ’s love for humanity, and announce to everyone that only in the death and resurrection of Christ can we find salvation and redemption.

With over 25 years of pilgrimage experience (including leading thousands of pilgrims to the past 9 World Youth Days), JMJ Youth is the leader in WYD travel. They offer a variety of Pre- and Post-WYD options and several types of lodging to fit any budget.
