We introduce the young to the experience of ecclesial life by bringing them into a faith community and helping them to take part in it. To this end we promote and animate groups and movements for formation and apostolic and social action. In these the young people grow in the awareness of their own responsibilities and learn to give their irreplaceable contribution to the transformation of the world and to the life of the Church and so become themselves the “ first apostles of the young in direct contact with them”.
 
KINDS OF GROUPS: 
prayer, Bible, missions, catechists, volunteers, past pupils, choir, camp animators, etc
