Un nouveau Président pour Juventutem: Bertalan Kiss, de Juventutem Hongrie

29 février 2016

Chers membres et amis de Juventutem,

Les membres du Bureau de Juventutem sont heureux d’annoncer la désognation d’un nouveau Président pour la Fédération internationale Juventutem.

Populus Summorum Pontificum 2014

Le Président sortant, George Steven (de Grande-Bretagne), a transmis le flanbeau à Bertalan Kiss, 28 ans, après 18 mois de bons et loyaux services. La candidature de Bertalan avait été appuyée par Simon Kocjan de Juventutem Slovenia et Aramis Perez de Juventutem Miami.  Bertalan sera aux côtés de la délégation internationale de Juventutem aux JMJ de Cracovie cet été, en compagnie de M. l’abbé de Malleray, Assistant ecclésiastique de Juventutem.

Bertalan a découvert la messe traditionnelle en 2009 grâce au Capitulum Laicorum Sancti Michaelis Archangeli de Budapest.  En 2012, il a cofondé le pèlerinage annuel Peregrinatio Fidei qui rassemble les fidèles attachés à la forme extraordinaire du rite romain en Hongrie. En 2014, après avoir rencontré l’abbé de Malleray, George Steven, Paul Schultz, notre Secrétaire, et d’autres membres, il devint un membre de la refondation de notre association et le coordinateur de Juventutem Magyarország (Facebook, Website)

De la part de tous, nous souhaitons remercier George Steven pour sa présidence dévouée. Toutes nos prières l’accompagnent.

Nous tenons également à remercier Bertalan d’avoir accepté de prendre sa suite. Il a activement participé à de nombreux pèlerinages internationaux et assuré la promotion de Juventutem dans son pays. Nous avons hâte qu’il fasse bénéficier la Fédération internationale Juventutem de ses talents et vous invitons à prier pour lui et ses nouvelles fonctions.

Nous comptons sur tous nos responsables de groupes locaux et sur les correspondants isolés qui le souhaitent pour entrer au plus vite en contact par courrier électronique avec Bertalan et Paul afin de mettre à jour nos fichiers.

On 29 February 2016

Dear Juventutem members and supporters,

We, the members of the Bureau of Juventutem, are delighted to announce the appointment of a new President for the International Juventutem Federation.

Populus Summorum Pontificum 2014

The former President, George Steven (from the United Kingdom), rotated out of his position after a year and a half of generous service. Bertalan Kiss (28), of Hungary, applied for the position of President and was recommended for it by Simon Kocjan from Juventutem Slovenia and Aramis Perez from Juventutem Miami.  Bertalan will be present as part of the worldwide Juventutem delegation to JMJ Krakow, this summer, together with Fr. de Malleray.

Bertalan was introduced to the Traditional Latin Mass in 2009 through the work of the Capitulum Laicorum Sancti Michaelis Archangeli.  In 2012 he was a co-founder of the Peregrinatio Fidei, an annual pilgrimage and Pontifical Mass for the faithful attached to the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite in Hungary.  In 2014, after meeting with Father, George, Paul, and other Juventutem leaders in Rome, he became a re-founding member and the Group Coordinator of Juventutem Magyarország (Facebook, Website)

On behalf of all, we would like to thank George for his dedicated service. All our prayers and hearty thanks go to him.

We would also like to thank Bertalan for accepting the position of President. He has actively led international Latin Mass pilgrimages and has also promoted Juventutem in his country. We look forward to what he will bring to Juventutem internationally, and we invite you to pray for him as he takes up his duties.

In the meantime, we ask that every group leader (and every correspondent wishing so) email Bertalan and Paul so as to update our contact records:
Bertalan: president at juventutem dot org
Paul: secretary at juventutem dot org

Let us pray for each other,
In Christ,

Every chaplain or lay leader registers his own members, in accordance with his needs, as a sub-group. If you plan on coming to Krakow for WYD or would like to help the youth in your ministry or group, we request that you inform us of your subgroup at We will then create a subgroup in the WYD system, for which you will have a login and password, and which you will be able to use according to your needs. The registration page directs all those interested through all the steps, including payment.


As usual, Extraordinary Form clergy will accompany the young adults and will hear confessions, give lectures and take part in the liturgy. They include priests and seminarians from various countries, with Fr Armand de Malleray, Ecclesiastical Assistant to the FIJ.
