Every few years the Holy Father calls the youth of the world to gather in one city to celebrate World Youth Day. The upcoming World Youth Day will be held in Panama, in January 2019. “But I thought World Youth Day was in the summer”, you may reply. In a surprising change of events, the upcoming World Youth Day will be held in the winter months. Of course in Panama you’ll be exchanging your snow pants for sunscreen.

Because this mission/pilgrimage  will be happening during the winter semester, it will geared primarily towards CCO alumni. This does not mean that students can’t apply, just be prepared to miss over a week of classes!

We are still in the planning stages of this mission, but you can expect it to involve attending the large group catechesis events, speaking opportunities, hosting events, and lots of sharing the Ultimate Relationship booklet.

We’ll be updating this page as more information become available.

The cost of this mission covers your accommodations, travel, and meals in Panama. You will need to arrange and pay for your own travel to Panama City on or before January 19th. However, you will be able to fundraise and be reimbursed for this cost.
