Bogotá, Colombia 200 volunteers from La Sabana University headed to 2019 WYD in Panama

“You were a great help for the visit of the Holy Father to Colombia and you will also be a great help at World Youth Day in January next year.” With this message, the Cardinal Primate of Colombia, Rubén Salazar, thanked the volunteers from La Sabana for their participation during the “sending forth” Mass which these young people attended. The Mass was celebrated by the auxiliary bishop of Bogotá, Pedro Salamanca. In his homily he invited the young men and women to serve others with joy: “May those who are going as volunteers imbue in the young people attending WYD in Panama a spirit of service and dynamism,” he said. “We are fulfilled when we love: to love is to give, to be of service, to think of others and help them to be better.”
