It's pretty simple. Catholic Youth Expeditions is an ecclesial community of the New Evangelization. JP II states in Pastores Dabo Vobis, "ecclessial communities are not antithetical to the Church. Rather they regenerate its historical and existential nature." In other words, "They're IMPORTANT!" Jean Vanier, founder of L'Arche Communties states, "Our world has more and more need of 'intermediate' --places where people can find a certain interior freedom before they make their decision. A place where they can discover their deep selves." That's what we are...a place where interior freedom can be discovered through love, mercy and forgiveness. We are a pre-formative intermediate community for young adults who want to follow Jesus Christ and His Church plain and simple. We are all about formation, not training. About people and not numbers. Souls and not money. Grace over sin. Life over death. Fun & faith over rigidity and empty ritual. A place of mercy, a place of healing. So simple, we tend to forget about it, but the thing the Church needs most.
