INTERNATIONAL COMMUNICATION #01
Dear Young of the Vincentian Family in all its Branches, Commissions and Continental Organizations:
The Central Committee of VYG2019 greets you from Panama, place where the WYD2019 will take place, and wants to invite you to share with us “The Joy of Being Vincentian” being part of this great family event that will give us the opportunity to strengthen our identity of Being Church from the Vincentian charism in Latin America. In addition to providing a meeting space for Vincentian pilgrims, we hope also to contribute to the formation of Vincentian youth of the world with our experience of the Latin American faith, and so collaborate in their spiritual growth, through the experience of the laity (secular), cultivating maturity in the identity and commitment of young people towards the future as active adults in different Vincentian branches.
The VYG2019 will take place, in a site still to be defined in Panama, from January Friday 18th to Monday 21st 2019, day in which we will leave the meeting to join the activities of the WYD2019 that will begin on Tuesday 22nd and end on Sunday 27th.
The registration of our meeting will be USD$60.00 plus the solidarity fund of WYD2019 and the package that your group chooses to participate in the WYD2019. For example, if you choose the A1 package of the WYD2019, everything would come out in USD$302.00 (VYG2019: USD$60.00; WYD2019 Solidarity Fund: USD$12.00; WYD Package A1: USD$230.00). To this must also be added the costs of the bank transfer.
We know that the dates are a bit difficult for some because it is not a holiday season, while for others will do great. That’s why we want you to provide us with your information, through the following link, to know your interest in participating in the VYG2019, how many people do you have in your group interested in participating in the meeting, and to ensure that we have your information so that our next communications, where we will provide more information about the meeting, can reach you. We are waiting for you in Panama!
United in prayer, your brothers and sisters in Vincent and Louise say goodbye,
