Panama 2019


“I am the servant of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word”

​January 21-27, 2019

World Youth Day was begun by Pope John Paul II as a way to capture the spirit of the youth and to inspire them to live the teachings of Christ.

The Catholic Association of Latino Leaders is proud to announce that we are going to World Youth Day 2019 under the leadership of Fr. Ernesto Reynoso and Fr. David Mbimadong. Sixty individuals will be joining the millions of pilgrims from January 21-27, 2019 in Panama City, Panama. Registrations will begin immediately and will run through January 2018. Preliminary information is enclosed.

World Youth Day has since brought millions of Catholic youth, from every corner of the world, to present themselves before the Lord. Follow the pilgrim path and be a part of the generation that will change nations.
