Peru prepares its delegation for WYDSeptember 20, 2018
The Dominican Republic is yet another country to give its “yes” to World Youth Day Panama 2019. More than 200 Dominicans have participated in the preparatory seminars based on the catechesis proposed by the Local Organizing Committee of WYD.
The National Commission for Dominican Youth Ministry has been preparing since February of this year, organizing five meetings with young people from all the dioceses in the country.
An integrated delegation is one of the main objectives of those in charge, and that is why in July young people who have registered to be part of this international gathering met in the Diocese of San Francisco de Macorís. They participated in the activities based on the recognition of the leadership of young people, the need to be authentic and to give of self to others in order to create a better society.
The second meeting is scheduled for September 30th, where they will continue going out to the peripheries as the Pope asked us.
The delegation of young Dominicans will leave for Panama on Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019.
