Panama to host largest faith party of the planet

Jornada Mundial de la Juventud

Las Jornadas Mundiales de la Juventud se convertirán en una fiesta de fe.

Some of the greatest Catholic singer-songwriters will be gathered by Oregon Catholic Press at Cristonaut@s park during the World Youth Day

World Youth Day, to be held in Panama from January 21 to 26, will become the year’s largest Christian prayer party on the planet. And as with any party, there will certainly be music. Lots of it.

An initiative of Oregon Catholic Press, the Cristonaut@s theme park, organized by the Ramón Pané Foundation, will bring together some of the best-known Christian songwriters of the world for a variety of concerts and prayer vigils.

Steve Angrisano, Athenas, Jon Carlo Music, Iván Díaz, ValLimar Jansen, Azeneth González, Santiago Fernández, and Jesse Manibusan, among others, are ready to go on stage and share the faith and enthusiasm of tens of thousands of young people who will come to participate in this great encounter with Pope Francis.

Cristonaut@s, a theme park in which virtual reality and high technology allow visitors to immerse themselves in scenarios reproducing biblical passages, will welcome the young in concerts and worship nights in the afternoons. The facilities are already set in the Omar park in Panama.
