Abstract:  The brochure describes the purpose of Y.C. to foster situations in which young people can discover themselves as creative persons; build friendship and community; become aware of world needs and respond through deepening relationships, especially with the wounded and rejected; and discover the presence, meaning and challenge of Jesus in their lives. Activities revolve around weekend retreats for youth and adults, educational programs, involvement in prisons and work with the handicapped and preparing people for commitment.
