Our founder, Steve Kerekes, began with a tremendous desire to evangelize his students through pilgrimages to Europe and World Youth Day. This has now grown into a organization that shares that same desire. We choose knowledgeable guides who share a similar zeal and are faithful, living witnesses of the Catholic Faith.
If there were something like a frequent flyer miles status for leading WYD pilgrimages, we would have Platinum Elite Status especially because of our unparalleled World Youth Day experience in Denver, Manila, Paris, Rome, Toronto, Cologne, Sydney and Madrid. This gives us a unique perspective on the WYD event and in the way we lead your group. We have over 20 years of pilgrimage experience including the last 7 World Youth Days as well as our pilgrimages to shrines such as Lourdes, Fatima, Assisi and Rome.
JMJ YOUTH shares a common mission with youth ministers around the world, to evangelize, catechise and change lives. We create opportunities for young people to open their hearts to the Grace of God on pilgrimages.
Our philosophy is simple: teach teens and young adults how to grow closer to God by removing the clutter of life and making room for Grace. We travel close to the ground encountering the history and culture of the people.
Groups that choose to travel with JMJ YOUTH are those who want to experience an authentic, WYD, Catholic youth pilgrimage led by guides who are faithful, knowledgeable, fun and seek to inspire greatness all the while being role-models of faith and life.
