The Year of Youth is a yearlong dedication of Diocesan and parish/mission level activities, and is a call to action for all the Syro Malabar faithful. The Year of Youth will begin on Sunday, January 1, 2017 and end on Sunday, December 31, 2017. Youth ministries in all the parishes/missions will be integrated under the Diocesan Youth Apostolate, which will provide a common vision for the success and growth of our Syro Malabar Church, promoting unity, and reviving parish life.
