MAGIS 2023 | 22-31 July 2023
MAGIS is a worldwide program for youth and young adults between 18 and 30 years of age connected to the Society of Jesus. It features an event which is held during the ten days prior to any World Youth Day (WYD). While in Panama, Pope Francis announced that the next WYD would take place in Portugal.
This worldwide program was first held in France in 1997, but it was in Germany, in 2005, that it got its name and became an official gathering, which was repeated for each of the WYD. A few years later, in 2011, in Spain, it brought together thousands of participants from 50 different countries. Its current format was created at that time and has been used for the subsequent gatherings.
