Jesus Youth- approved by Holy See

 

 

The Pontifical Council for Laity has recognized Jesus Youth as an 'International Private Association of the Faithful with Juridical personality’. We are humbled by the fact thatJesus Youth is the first movement in India and the second movement from Asia to receive such an approval!

 

 

“It is my pleasure, therefore, to confirm the Dicastery’s readiness to issue a decree approving the statutes and granting recognition to Jesus Youth as an International Private Association of the Faithful, with juridical personality in Canon Law,” says the letter signed by council secretary Bishop Josef Clemens, received on 6th April 2016.  The decree of approval will be awarded during a ceremony held at the Vatican on 20th of May 2016.
