World Youth Day 2019 (WYD 2019, es: Jornada Mundial de la Juventud 2019) is an international Catholic event focused on religious faith and youth, due to be celebrated on January 22-27, 2019 in Panama City, Panama.[1] This was announced by Pope Francis at the end of the closing Mass of World Youth Day 2016 in Brzegi nearby Krakow, Poland[2][3] with the attendance of Panamanian President Juan Carlos Varela and his wife Lorena Castillo.[4] This will be the first WYD to take place in Central America. Panamanian bishops welcomed the event, saying that Panama's location as the "bridge between two continents" will make it a multicultural event and a "fiesta latina".[4]
