What is United Catholic Youth Ministries?
United Catholic Youth Ministries (UCYM) is a regional parish-serving ministry for youth, young adults, and families.
UCYM accompanies youth, young adults, and families on their faith journey.
UCYM has four main pastoral ministry focuses: youth ministry, young adult ministry, campus ministry, and Hispanic ministry, which are supported by four pillars of pastoral ministry: service, worship, faith formation, and community building.
UCYM was established in close consideration of Renew My Churchin the Archdiocese of Chicago and the need to collaborate and share resources.
