The first international YOUCAT Summer School

Catechists are people,

Who burn for the transmission of the Catholic faith
They know what the whole church believes
Who would like to develop personally in coaching
Know the methods with which faith goes from heart to heart

YOUNG MISSIO International

YOUNG MISSIO International will help you become a true missionary disciple of Christ for the renewal of the Church!

YOUCAT is a global bestseller with over 7 million copies and over 70 languages. But it is not only a book. YOUCAT is at the heart of a catechetical New Evangelization movement within the Church that helps people on all continents to get to know the faith of the Catholic Church.
