Office of Catholic Youth

We exist to help youth and young adults encounter, love, and serve Jesus Christ

Our Vision & Mission

Our vision is to guide youth and young adults, to Encounter, Love, and Serve, Jesus Christ. To see young people transformed into Christian leaders who know Christ, have a growing relationship with Him, and are empowered to evangelize, gather, catechize, and send forth. Our mission is to cultivate relationships and support those who minister to young people within the Archdiocese of Toronto. We achieve this by providing consulting, training, and resources at a local parish level, and host diocesan-wide conferences, camps, and retreats.
