St Louis Youth Group Attends World Youth Day in Panama
World Youth Day was held January 22-27, 2019 in Panama City, Panama

St. Louis Parish was proud to host a delegation of youth to World Youth Day 2019 in Panama City, Panama. The massive gathering of Catholic youth takes place every two or three years. 2019 was the first time the event was held in Central America.

More than 300 young people from the Archdiocese attended the event, which ran from Friday, January 25, through Sunday, January 27, attended by more than 700,000 people. At the closing Mass, Pope Francis encouraged attendees to follow Mary's example of saying "yes" to the mission entrusted to them by God, assuring them that Our Lady accompanies them in their journey.

World Youth Day 2019

The following is Pope Francis' closing message to youth following the 2019 World Youth Day in Panama.

At the end of the Mass, the Pope prayed to Our Lady, delivering the young people of the whole world, and said goodbye to the pilgrims, announcing the site of the next WYD, in 2022, in Lisbon, Portugal. ""To you, dear young people, a big thank you! Your faith and joy made Panama, America, and the whole world vibrate. We are on the way: continue to walk, continue to live the faith and share it. Do not forget that you are not tomorrow, you are not the 'however', but the now of God.

The site of the next World Youth Day has been announced. I ask you not to let it cool what you have lived in these days. Return to your parishes and communities, to your families and to your friends, and pass on this experience, so that others may vibrate with the strength and the dream that you have in you. With Mary, continue to say 'yes' to the dream that God sowed in you."

Catholicism by Father Robert Barron

The Catholicism series of DVDs was presented at St. Louis and is highly recommended to those who would like a better understanding of our faith. Created by Father Robert Barron, rector of Mundelein Seminary in Chicago, Catholicism is an intimate journey, capturing “The Catholic Thing” in all its depth and beauty in a style that is both faithful to timeless truths, while simultaneously speaking in the language of contemporary life. If you have not had a chance to experience this remarkable journey, the DVD series is available at several sites online.
