Youth Teams of Our Lady
Youth Teams of Our Lady in Canada is a Catholic youth movement where young people can get together to pray and deepen their faith.
It’s a group of people who you can relate to, and who are often going through the same things you are in their lives. There’s always a group or a retreat that you can go to for spiritual support, whether you’re in high school, working, or going to university. Together we can move through this time of our lives with Christ and His mother Mary, developing a more meaningful spiritual life and discovering our vocation.
There are two main things that we organize and lead in Youth Teams of Our Lady: team meetings and retreats. We also make an effort to give something of ourselves to any community we’re a part of, so as to spread the love of Christ to the people around us. The retreats vary in terms of the age groups they’re organized for, as do the meetings. Our retreats are made to enrich your faith, and give you a break from every-day life so that you can focus more on your spiritual life. The team meetings are like an extension of the retreats- they continue to give spiritual strength in smaller doses during the year. Every team has a leader, a spiritual counsel and a married couple to assist, give input, and share their experiences about the things we discuss in the meetings.
WHAT WE DO
WHO WE ARE
Our mission is to help the youth who are called to holiness to discover and put into practice all the dimensions of the Christian spirituality, in fidelity to the teachings of the Catholic Church, having Mary’s “yes” as a model. YTOL helps their members to progress in the love of God and in the love of their neighbor: they have recourse to brotherly mutual help so that the members can adopt concrete conditions of their personal, family, professional and social lives according to the will of God; they encourage the members to become conscious of their evangelizing mission in the Church and in the world, by means of the witness and of such other activities as they may decide to engage in.
