World Day for Carmelite Youth

The World Day for Youth will take place between the 22nd and the 27th of January next year [2019] in Panama. The Discalced Carmelites of the Province of Central America, invite us to the World Day for Carmelite Youth, which will be celebrated, God willing, on the 28th of January. To facilitate participation by the youth from throughout the world, they have set up this web page in eight languages: Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, English, German, Russian and Latin:

This IV World Day has as its topic: “God is infinite joy”. Fr Marco Antonio Durán, the Provincial, begins his letter of welcome in this manner:

 Very dear young people of the Family of Carmel,

In the context of the coming World Youth Day, to be held in Panama in January 2019, our Teresian Carmelite Province of Central America is filled with much joy and hope in hosting our IV Carmelite Day for the Youth.

As the Provincial of the Discalced Carmelites, and in the name of my brethren, the Discalced Carmelite friars, the Discalced Carmelite nuns and the Secular Carmel of Central America, I give you the warmest WELCOME to this website, which aims to be “a window to meet each other, to get to know one another, to encourage each other and to get organized”, in view of the Carmelite Youth Day, which we will hold, God willing, on the 28th of January 2019”.
