Youth 2000

Youth 2000 is an international Catholic movement for young people, generally between the ages of 16 and 35. At this weekend-long convention, teens and adults alike share their love for Jesus through the Eucharist, adoration, and praise and worship.

Purpose

Whilst specific details vary from country to country, the main focuses of Youth 2000 tend to be as follows :

  • Increasing the awareness and love of Jesus in the Eucharist, through Mass and Eucharistic Adoration.
  • Promoting devotion to Mary as a means of coming closer to Christ, through saying the Rosary.
  • Encouraging young people to read the Bible, get to know Jesus through Scripture and also to promote understanding of and fidelity to official Church teaching.

Practices

Youth 2000's activities generally include the running of both prayer groups and weekend retreats for young people.
