Over sixty thousand young people worldwide took part of the "Jubilee of Boys and Girls" at the Vatican City from the 23rd to the 25th of April, which is part of the ongoing Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy.

Over the course of three days, pilgrims from across the globe are able to hear witnesses describing their deep experiences of the Works of Mercy in seven piazzas in the City Center of Rome. Pope Francis, who was present at this Jubilee, managed to hear confessions of young people in St. Peter's Square and offer them a sacrament of reconciliation. Over a hundred and fifty priests were present in the square to hear the confessions.

The next event for the ongoing Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy will be the Prayer Vigil to Dry the Tears on the 5th of May.
