As you may know, this gathering, which was agreed upon in Mendes in 2006 and approved by the CIAP en 2007 provided those individuals, on the province level, the opportunity to come together every two years to look at the issue of youth ministry and share ideas as to how we can better minister to the young people within our respective provinces.

This gathering has been prepared by the subcommision for Marist Youth Ministry, which is under the direction of the Commission for Mission. The gathering will take place in Guatemala City and hosted by the Province of Central America.
