Vision Jeunesse

Vision Jeunesse" (French expression meaning "Youth Vision") is a French version of "Youth Encounter", a Catholic Movement for young adults ages 17 - 25.  It was introduced in the diocese of Timmins, ON, Canada, in 1970 by Jean Grisé, cursillista, and later on modified and adapted by Mgr Paul-André Durocher, who was then Parish priest, and Father Richard-Georges Miron.  

WHAT IT IS: 

  • A movement whose purpose is to bring young Catholics to a deeper personal knowledge of Jesus and to a life witnessing the Christian faith...
  • a movement which starts with a weekend and extends in regular meetings.

THE WEEKEND: 

  • talks given by young people and adults about what it means to live as a Christian youth today...
  • group discussions...
  • shared meals..
  • celebrations...
  • individual counselling for those interested...

AFTER THE WEEKEND: 

  • small group meetings with discussion and mutual support...
  • open workshops and projects...
  • leisure and social activities...
