The youth group of the downtown Catholic church of Immaculate Conception is organizing a day of praise and prayer on October 25th named “Estallido de alabanzas y oración”, with special guest priest Alvaro Carrillo Lugo, and thirty servants of God, including  audio technicians, and all of them have various talents and charisma. There will be a nominal fee of 50 pesos, and the event is held at the invitation of pastor Jesús Martínez Penilla, in coordination with the group  Renovación Católica and the children's group Carisma. When there was a similar event two years ago, it was attended by about 900 people.
