Building Bridges - Mobilizing for Mission
Fostering unity in the worldwide body of Christ
to reach every kid, everywhere with the Gospel


​What is Young Life Catholic Relations?

Young Life Catholic Relations is building a bridge between the Catholic Church and Young Life, making a global impact in the world of kids. 

Its purpose is two-fold: 
1) To build teams of missionary disciples that reflect the worldwide body of Christ (Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox).
2) To reanimate the faith of disconnected Catholics and reconnect them to a local Catholic parish.
