Dear friends in Christ Jesus,

Are you ready to participate in a life changing adventure?

Please, join our bishop, the most Reverend Roger J. Foys, and some of our priests from the Diocese of Covington for World Youth Day in Panama.

Make the choice of a lifetime to spend a week and half away seeking to know and love the Lord Jesus Christ more deeply and intimately by joining our Holy Father, Pope Francis and our Bishop at World Youth Day 2019, in Panama.

You will not be alone. Thousands of bishops, priests, religious and the lay faithful from all over the globe will come together in Panama to sing, pray, worship and learn about their universal Catholic faith.

Typically side trips are arranged by the travel agency, and are included in the cost of the trip. Those details are not yet available for Panama.

The Department of Catechesis and Faith Formation has created an excellent and cost-effective program with our Pilgrimage partner, Faith Journeys.

We will have a flyer listing the itinerary for the trip. There will also be a brochure with more information about the trip, including what is and is not included in the cost, a payment schedule, terms and conditions of Faith Journeys (the travel agency we are using) and travel insurance. There will be a registration form to complete and return to the Department of Catechesis and Formation. Those who attend World Youth Day must be at least 16 years old at the time of the event.

I pray that you seriously consider attending World Youth Day with our bishop and other pilgrims from the diocese of Covington.

You can count on my prayers for you.

May the Lord Jesus Christ bless you in everything you do in His name,

Isaak Abraham Isaak

Director
Department of Catechesis and Formation
