YOUTH 2000

YOUTH 2000 is an international retreat program started in 1990 at the request of John Paul II to evangelize Catholic youth. Each year our diocesan YOUTH 2000 welcomes more than 300 youths, many from parish youth groups and Confirmation classes. Most are young teens, but college students also attend. It will be held on October 11-13, 2019 at Covington Catholic High school.

The charism of YOUTH 2000 is to lead young people, through prayer and teaching instruction before the Blessed Sacrament, to a personal encounter and ever-deepening union of heart and mind with the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Christ. Through the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit, the spirituality of YOUTH 2000 seeks to imitate Mary, the Mother of God, by fostering a spirit of prayer, Adoration and obedience to the will of God.
