WORLD YOUTH DAY 2019
Pope Francis has invited the young people of the world to join him in Panama for the next World Youth Day. Already parishes and dioceses are making plans to pilgrimage to join the Holy Father.
Panama is the bridge between two continents and in 2019 young people from around the globe will flock to this tiny nation. They, as with all World Youth Day pilgrims since 1986, have sought to bridge the sacred and the secular; to take our faith to the culture and share it passionately.
