We have received new information from the organization of the International Meeting of Vincentian Youth (IMVY), which will take place in Panama, from January 18 to 21, 2019, in preparation for the World Youth Day. The motto of the IMVY will be: “The joy of being a Vincentian.” The registration fee has also been defined, which will be US $60. If everything goes well, the inscriptions will begin towards the end of this month of February.

The meeting will have the capacity to host up to a thousand participants.
