Barquisimeto, Venezuela. The Claretian Youth Movement in Venezuela called as ANCLA (ANthohy CLaret) celebrated its 40 years of existence in a two-day celebration in the city of Barquisimeto, November 16 to 17, 2019, with the participation of more or less 200 youth from all over Venezuela. The national team of the movement, the Lay Claretians, former members of the ministry, various Claretian Missionaries were present to commemorate that the Claretian presence in the midst of Venezuelan youth remains a reality. It’s a matter of pride to know that ANCLA is the youth movement with more years in Venezuela and remains a valid option for training and support for young people who are the “present” of our Church and the Congregation.
The only thing left to do is to thank God for allowing the Claretian spirit to continue to permeate young people to be a light to the world, particularly in this country.
