New President & Secretary

The Juventutem International Federation is pleased to announce that Henry Walker (England) succeeds Bertalan Kiss (Hungary) as President and John Paul Makilya (Kenya, New York) succeeds Monica Clarke (USA) as Secretary. Cosimo Marti (Switzerland, Italy) stays on as Treasurer as does Fr Armand de Malleray, FSSP (UK) as Chaplain. We are grateful to all at the Bureau, and in our local groups for their past and current involvement at the service of the sanctification of the young according to the Roman traditions of the Church.

Please visit the pages of our various chapters to communicate and book for the forthcoming events, notably: the Pilgrimage of Christendom from Paris to Chartres on the weekend of Pentecost; the annual Summer Weekend in the UK (Ampleforth Abbey, Yorkshire, 21-23 July 2023); and WYD (see below).

World Youth Day: Lisbon 2-6 August 2023

Whereas the uncertainty affecting the celebration of the traditional Latin liturgy precludes participation on the same scale as at previous World Youth Days, Juventutem will be present in Lisbon. Adequate venue has been secured in the centre of the capital. Doctrinal and spiritual conferences, and liturgies, will be held daily. Please note that Juventutem will take no booking of any kind. Pilgrims must secure their travel, accommodation, meals and any such arrangements separately from Juventutem. The location and schedule will be advertised on Juventutem medias in time before WYD begins.
