Welcome to the Catholic Church in Jersey Youth website

Welcome from the Youth Ministry Coordinator

Youth Ministry is a huge role and I have taken this on at a time when there has been necessary restructuring. JaCy is the Jersey Association of Catholic Youth and is the foundation of Youth Ministry within our Jersey Catholic parish. While my role is predominantly with the youth activities, YSVP and Youth 2000, I work closely with Mary Cahill, Marriage and Family Life Ministry Coordinator and Fr. Benjamin, our youth chaplain who is now leading the Confirmation programme. I am well supported by a group of voluntary leaders who tirelessly give up their time willingly to support Youth Ministry. Youth Ministry is also supported by a wonderful Parish Youth Assembly, made up of youth stewards from across our many island schools and colleges and representing each of our church communities. From year 10 upwards, our young people have the opportunity to put themselves forward for a role on the Parish Youth Assembly 

You will have heard it said that the youth are the future of the Catholic Church. In Youth Ministry we argue that this is not the case. Our youth are the church today. The church is alive. We are very fortunate in Jersey that our Parish Priest and Dean, Monsignor Nicholas France, supports Youth Ministry. The Catholic Church in Jersey cares about its youth and since 2005, a vibrant youth ministry has grown. 

If you are young and Catholic then you belong to the Jersey Association of Catholic Youth. Getting involved with JaCy activities and events is a way for the young Catholics of the Jersey Catholic Parish to join together for fun, spiritual formation, prayer and service.

JaCy has its own meeting room base. 'The Upper Room' is above the hall at St. Thomas's Church.

Please take some time to view our website. We would love to hear from you.
