Jesus Youth is an International Association within the Catholic Church with a focus on evangelising young people, promoting an active Christian way of life and nurturing their missionary initiatives. Jesus Youth is an initiative of young people themselves, who, filled with the Holy Spirit try to reach out to other young people. In their life situations, they strive to give time to the Lord and employ day-to-day life activities as a means of evangelisation and sanctification of the world. The network of small and vibrant groups of Jesus Youth serve as a platform for young people to grow together and share Christ using their talents and gifts.
Jesus Youth is passionately Catholic in its vision, approach and expression. On the 7th of April 2016, the Pontifical Council of Laity (Vatican) recognised Jesus Youth as an “International Private Association of the Faithful with Juridical personality”. On May 20th, 2016, Bishop Josef Clemens, Secretary of the Pontifical Council for the Laity, presented to Jesus Youth a Decree of the Recognition. The same decree approved its statutes.
