Youth 2000

Youth 2000 retreatYouth 2000 is an international movement of young people called to spread the Good News of the Catholic faith and share this experience with other young people. Youth 2000 Ireland have around 40 weekly prayer groups around the country, 16 to 18 weekend retreats throughout the year, a summer festival, an annual ball and various other social events - all organised by young people, for young people. Their motto is "Youth leading youth to the heart of the Church."

The 3 ‘pillars’ of Youth 2000 are:

  1. Devotion to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament 
  2. Devotion to Our Lady particularly through the Rosary 
  3. Fidelity to the Teaching of the Church, including a deep love for Sacred Scripture.

Here's what some young people attending a Youth 2000 retreat had to say:
