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[edit]

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[edit]

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