Functioning in close collaboration with the Commission for Youth and the prayer movements, Jesus Youth is another strong movement taking shape in some of the parishes. Active and zealous young men and women band together and engage themselves in the study of the Bible and organizing prayer. They are under the guidance of the coordinator of the North Zone of the Jesus Youth. Training programmes are arranged for them periodically. The Jesus Youth have a very salutary influence on the parish. Through their active participation in parish life, the youth are motivated to shun drugs and unhealthy activities.
