Office of Catholic Youth (OCY)

The Office of Catholic Youth is focused on cultivating relationships and providing support to those who minister to young people, primarily in parish and campus communities, within the Archdiocese of Toronto.


Mission & Vision
Our primary mission is to assist in the evangelization of young people by providing consulting, training, and resources to start-up and sustain strong youth, campus and young adult ministry at the parish (local) level. Our secondary mission is to host
diocesan events (i.e. conferences, camps, retreats, etc.) and to collaborate with school boards, organizations and communities that will help strengthen youth, campus and young adult ministries.

Our vision is to form youth and young adults into Christian leaders who come to know Christ, deepen their relationship with Him, and are transformed into one of His faith-filled disciples — evangelize, gather, catechize, and send forth.
