World Youth Day Panama 2019 presents the pilgrim’s kit
Panama City, December 7, 2018. Music, dance, plastic arts, cinema, and theater, as well as paint and photography will be instruments of cultural connection for the pilgrims of World Youth Day Panama. Hosted in thirty-three locations around Panama City, the Youth Festival will engage young people from all over the globe in various expressions of art and culture.
The WYD Local Organizing Committee has published the agenda of the Youth Festival that will happen between January 23rd and 27th, 2019, where there will be seven official stages, identified by the names of the Patron Saints of WYD Panama 2019. There will also be satellite stages at the main commercial centers of the Panamanian capital as well as presentations in theaters, museums, and churches that will be adoration centers.
One of the novelties of the program of the Youth Festival is the “WYD 2019 Cup,” a friendly soccer tournament that will be held Wednesday, January 23rd.
The purpose of this soccer encounter is to unite the young pilgrims of the world through a sports activity that will be more about sharing than competing. It is an opportunity to develop good values: teamwork, sportsmanship, effort, respect, honesty, and collaboration.
