The Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) is a parish-based academic and athletic program that falls within the parameters of a parish’s comprehensive youth ministry program. CYO allows youth to discover and grow in their relationship with God, provides opportunities for youth to grow in faith and understanding of their Church, and helps them become responsible participants in their faith community through involvement in athletic and academic programs that promote the holistic development of young people.
The vision of the Office of Youth, Young Adult and Family Ministry (OYYAFM) through CYO is to provide parishes the support and resources to carry on the effort of evangelization through organized sports and academic activities. We seek to form the students as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ, and nurture their transforming relationship with our Lord. CYO activities must be rooted in their faith communities and in the Sacramental life of the Catholic Church.
