Family and youth congresses

We need to challenge the youth to live chaste lives and to remain virgins until marriage.

Mother Teresa expressed this while giving a speech at Harvard University years ago when she said to them: “the greatest gift you can give each other on your wedding day is the gift of your virginity”.  She received a standing ovation from the students.  She told me that several students came to speak with her afterwards and said, “This is what we need to hear”! Which proves people are hungry for the truth.

Family of the Americas, with the help of catholic parishes in Guatemala and their youth ministries, organized this incredible congress where almost 8,000 youth promised to lead chaste lives and remain virgins until marriage.

These Catholic Youth Congresses are repeated every two years at the request of the young people involved in them.
