Jesus Youth UK


Our Spirituality

Jesus Youth is a Catholic Charismatic youth movement at the service of the church.

The movement has a structured formation program which helps its members to seek to grow as faithful disciples of Christ, through the six pillars of the movement.The six pillars of the movement are daily prayer, Word of God, Sacraments, Fellowship, Service and Evangelization.

  • Daily Prayer: A daily ‘quiet time’ with the Lord leading to an experience of the companionship of Jesus, enables one to have a joyful attitude in daily life.

  • Word of God: A regular time for a meditative reading of the Sacred Scripture helps one to seek God’s guidance and shape his life according to God’s will.

  • Sacraments: Frequent and active participation in the Sacraments of the Eucharist and Reconciliation contributes to a life of wholeness and strength and are integral to a person’s growth in holiness.

  • Fellowship: Christian life, a call to live the life of the Trinity in communion with one’s brothers and sisters in Christ through mutual support, encouragement and gentle correction, is an important element in the movement. Cells, small groups, prayer groups, service teams and friendship circles help to make Jesus Youth a family.

  • Evangelization: Personal renewal in Jesus leads to a commitment to share the person and message of Jesus with others. This commitment to evangelisation is central to the life of every Jesus Youth.

  • Option for the poor: Following the footsteps of the Master who brought the Good News to the poor, Jesus Youth stretches out a helping hand to those burdene with poverty and deprivation.
