JaCy continues to reach out to young adults aged 15-35 (year 10+) through our Youth 2000 group. Weekly throughout the year the Youth 2000 group (school year 10+) meet on a Thursday evening between 6.30 and 8.30pm. Youth 2000 was started in response to St John Paul II's invitation to the youth to take an active part in the Decade of Evangelisation leading up to the Great Jubilee Year 2000. Pope John Paul II asked young people to evangelise each other by coming together, learning about and experiencing the love of God, saying "It is up to you young people that the task first falls of bearing witness to the faith and bringing into the third millennium the Gospel of Christ, who is the Way, the Truth and the Life". The main focus of our Youth 2000 group is the love of Jesus through the Eucharist and Eucharistic Adoration and promoting devotion to Mary through praying the Rosary.
Youth 2000 is a way of 'plugging' into your faith. We meet for supper (bring money for a takeaway) and catechesis (learning and sharing about faith). During the Autumn 2017 term we will be looking at the 'Life in Christ' programme.
On Thurday evenings, Youth 2000 meet in the Youth Room at St.Thomas' (6.30-8.30pm) but also holds weekend meetings and events as announced. There are also opportunities to link up with Youth 2000 in the UK.
