MOTTO Alive in Christ through our faith and heritage. V. PURPOSE OF DOCUMENT The Constitution and Youth Ministry Guidelines of the Ukrainian Catholic Youth of Canada aims to reflect and allow for the current variety of structures that exist in parishes and eparchies. It promotes the further development of youth ministry in our Church. It provides guidance and freedom to develop what is necessary for particular circumstances and to meet the needs of each parish and eparchy. It keeps youth in relationship with other organizations and the Ukrainian Catholic Council. The document emphasizes that youth activities are to be predominantly parish based. The following exciting vision can only be developed in a structure based on Christ and teamwork. VI. PURPOSE OF THE UKRAINIAN CATHOLIC YOUTH OF CANADA To encourage and enable young people of our Ukrainian Catholic Christian community to share their gifts with their brothers and sisters in Christ supported in love by the community. VII. GOALS OF U.C.Y.C. MINISTRY 1. To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person. Youth ministry is comprehensive and seeks to respond to the total young person. Therefore, it works to meet educational, physical, psychological, spiritual, and social needs of young people. No one aspect of youth ministry is independent of others; they are all interdependent elements of a unified total vision. Because youth ministry is comprehensive IT REQUIRES THE SKILLS OF MANY PEOPLE such as youth, bishops, clergy, religious, parents, adults, and other community members. Youth ministry requires collaboration, not fragmentation or competition. Exposing youth to the richness of the Person of Christ exceeds the ability of one person. 2. To journey with youth to full responsibility and participation in the life, mission, and work of our faith community.

2 Young people are full members of the faith community here and now in the present. They are equal partners and should be fully involved in Church life and community life. Youth have talents that should be developed and used to enrich the Body of Christ. Youth ministry seeks to draw young people into a supportive experience of the local Christian community. This is accomplished by training, practice, and togetherness. Young people and adults must be open to youth having a vital role in parish life. Youth ministry seeks to make parishes youth-friendly. This means that parishes value the talents of young people. Parishes should celebrate the dynamism of youth. Parishes should demonstrate that they value and celebrate young people by tapping into this vital resource. Ideally, parishes do this by listening to youth and supporting them with prayer, time, facilities, and financial resources. It is so important for parishes to recognize the need to become youth-friendly if they are to benefit from the loyalty and active participation of youth. VIII.
