Here, as the first news, the Community of the parish of St Gerard Majella in Panama, which is working on the final review of the kit of pilgrims for the meeting at the WYD in Panama 2019. #RedendoristaSoy #JMA2019 #PANAMA2019
Nicaragua Present! Our Redemptorist brothers attended the meeting and the subsequent sending of pilgrims led by Cardinal Leopoldo Brenes, archbishop of Managua. If it is true that the situation in Nicaragua is very difficult in recent months, the prophetic spirit of the young Catholics of this country continues to teach the continent what it means to defend peace, justice, and solidarity.
From Guatemala we receive this photo of the whole delegation, finalizing the details of their trip and the presentation at the World Alphonsian Day. #JMA
Paraguay, ready! With great joy, our Paraguayan brothers and sisters prepare and track the road to WYD and GMA Panama 2019.
