United Catholic Youth Ministries supports parishes with Youth Ministry. Part of that support, with a growing population of Hispanic/Latinx people in the Archdiocese of Chicago, is through Pastoral Juvenil. Pastoral Juvenil is Youth Ministry with a focus on the reality of Hispanic/Latinx people and ministering, praying, and serving with that in mind. Pastoral Juvenil is very focused on accompaniment and action. The national movement for Hispanic Ministry, the V Encuentro, played a crucial role in us learning how we can listen to our young Hispanic/Latinx people.
United Catholic Youth Ministries supports the efforts of Pastoral Juvenil and is always open to collaborating to support the cultural aspect in the lives of our young people and their families.
