Catholic Youth Movement (CYM)
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” -Jeremiah 29:11
Catholic Youth Movement or CYM is a youth organization under the Syro-Malabar Church, which mainly targets youth who are born and brought up in Kerala, India. The mission of CYM is to unite all youth, especially young adults and young families, as one in holiness to serve the worldwide church and to boost fervor in our community. CYM gives importance to the Malayali culture of Kerala, while also upholding Catholic traditions.
