Panama (Agenzia Fides) - The Ordinary Plenary Assembly of the Episcopal Conference of Panama (CEP) is underway. The Assembly began on Monday, January 9 and will end on Friday 13 in Clayton. The central theme is the preparation for World Youth Day, which will take place in the country in 2019. CEP is responsible for the organization of the "Days in the Dioceses", this means that the Bishops must carefully plan the reception and the activities of the thousands of youth that will arrive in Panama before WYD 2019.
The Bishops will examine the national reality, illuminating it according to the teaching of the doctrine of the Catholic Church. (CE) (Agenzia Fides, 12/01/2017)
