World Youth Day 2019

The theme for World Youth Day 2019 in Panama will be “I am the servant of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word” (Lk. 1:38), the Dicastery for Laity, the Family, and Life has announced. 

This means that World Youth from 2017 will have Mary as a central figure for young people to contemplate. The themes, according to the dicastery, “are intended to give a clear Marian tone to the spiritual journey of the next three WYDs. 

“At the same time they give a picture of young people on a journey between the past (2017), present (2018), and future (2019), inspired by the three theological virtues of faith, hope and charity.”
