After years of anticipation and preparation, Panama’s biggest public event in decades is about to begin: the World Youth Day (Jornada Mundial de La Juventud). The event, hosted by the Catholic Church, is a gathering of Catholic youth from around the world, with celebrations that combine religious meetings with social events, and social welfare projects. As described by the Catholic Church:

“World Youth Day was initiated by Pope John Paul II in 1985. Its concept has been influenced by the Light-Life Movement that has existed in Poland since the 1960s, where during summer camps Catholic young adults over 13 days of camp celebrated a “day of community”. For the first celebration of WYD in 1986, bishops were invited to schedule an annual youth event to be held every Palm Sunday in their dioceses. It is celebrated at the diocesan level annually, and at the international level every two to three years at different locations.” Continue reading »
