The delegates representing bishops’ conferences from over 80 countries and about 35 international movements and communities will gather in Panama City from 6th till 9th of June to discuss the latest preparations for World Youth Day 2019. The 2nd International Preparatory Meeting organised by the WYD Local Organising Committee together with the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life is considered to be one of the key moments in preparation for next year’s World Youth Day.
“The detailed information to be given to the delegates during the meeting will help them to better prepare the spiritual and logistic aspects of the young people’s pilgrimage” – says Fr. João Chagas, the head of the Youth Office of the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life.
