Cosmos has been appointed as the official tour operator to coordinate the Australian pilgrimage to World Youth Day (WYD) 2019 in Panama.

The appointment of Cosmos to manage more than 1000 pilgrims across 30 groups follows a rigorous selection process conducted by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference.

Cosmos managed the successful Australian pilgrimages to World Youth Day 2016 in Krakow, Poland and has extensive experience in offering affordable tours across the globe including a range of religious tours.

The Australian Catholic Bishops Delegate for Youth, Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP, said the appointment of Cosmos as the tour operator for WYD 2019 would provide young people and the Church in Australia with a great opportunity to encounter the Catholic Church in Central America and Pope Francis through the WYD experience.

“I know Cosmos will again be of great assistance in managing the logistical needs of our pilgrimage in partnership with my brother Bishops and their local youth ministers,” Archbishop Fisher said.

“Building on their World Youth Day experience in Krakow, Cosmos will provide comprehensive infrastructure to support us on this important faith journey.”

Globus family of brands Managing Director Australasia Stewart Williams said Cosmos and the Globus family around the world were very excited and honoured by the appointment.

“We are committed to the success of Australia’s pilgrimage to WYD 2019,” Mr Williams said.

“We understand not only the logistical importance of this event, but the spiritual impact on the lives of young people and therefore the whole Church in Australia.

“We have begun our preparations and are looking forward to the journey ahead.”

As part of the Globus family of brands, Cosmos offers a specialist program of religious tours throughout Europe and the Holy Lands.  Its arrangements for World Youth Day pilgrims will be tailored specifically for the event, while at the same time drawing from its existing portfolio of religious destinations and experiences.

World Youth Day will be held in Panama City, Panama from January 22-27, 2019.
