Catholic Youth Organization

A Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) is an organization for young Catholics. Usually each group uses the church for meeting and gathering, although some have their own premises. It was initiated by Bishop Bernard J. Sheil of Chicago in the year 1930.

The organization's main purposes are guiding the young Catholics to live a Christian life from a young age, developing trust between peers, and living a happy life in a positive manner.

Activities vary in accordance with local culture but often includes marching bands. Its athletic contests are often so competitive that CYO has been jokingly described as "Crush Your Opponents."

There are also active units of this organization in the World Youth Day. Rexband, the music ministry of Jesus Youth is the only music band from Asia to perform during World Youth Day 2002, held in Canada. In 2008, it was held in Sydney from 15 to 20 July.
