Jesus Youth

Starting in Kerala in the early 1980s, Jesus Youth is an international Catholic movement currently present in more than 30 countries all over the world. Its spirituality is based on the 'six pillars' of prayer, the word of God, sacraments, fellowship, evangelization, and option for the poor. Today, the movement has innumerable ministries around the world and has special missions in countries such as Haiti, Uganda, and in countries where the faith is explicitly not welcome.
