We invite and encourage teens, youth, youth groups, young adults, youth and campus ministers, diocesan offices of Catholic youth, parishes, secondary schools, college and university campus ministers and chaplaincies to promote, start and participate in Holy Hours of Eucharistic Adoration with exposition of the Blessed Sacrament as a regular or weekly event at youth groups, meetings, and other opportunities for prayer times.

We invite and encourage you to start and have Eucharistic Adoration for children. Jesus said: “Let the children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these” (Mt 19:13).  Any size of group is fine and it can be kept simple.  Just bring children to adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament on a regular basis and He will bless you and them with His loving Real Presence.

Adoration for children in Canada is growing in parishes.  There is a Canadian movement  promoting children’s holy hours being formed.  Please contact us for more information and we can connect you.  Many parish chapels offer a weekly holy hour for children.

An international movement of youth was established in response to the challenge of Pope St. John Paul II. Their mission is to draw young people, through Our Mother Mary, to a deep and lasting union with Jesus Christ, especially in the Eucharist, the “source and summit of Christian life”:

1.  To promote a knowledge and love of Jesus in the most Blesssed Sacrament.
2.  To promote devotion to Mary, the Mother of God, especially through the rosary.
3.  To promote fidelity to the teachings of the Catholic Church and the Magisterium.

A Canadian chapter of Youth 2000 has not been set up yet.  Are there any Canadians who may be called to do so?

Adoration for Schools

Make arrangements to have some adoration for a small group, class or school assembly, to take place perhaps at your parish, or in your school chapel, gym or auditorium.   Those that may not be in  a state of grace to receive Holy Communion at school Masses can adore.  At this time, the Sacrament of Confession/Reconciliation could also be offered by a priest(s).  Those that are or become devoted to frequenting the Sacraments for monthly, weekly or regular Confession to remain in, or grow in, the state of grace of soul, or who want to return to the Sacraments, can be eternally grateful for this opportunity to receive God’s mercy.
