Pastoral Juvenil Hispana
In Latino cultures, “jóvenes” are young people ages approximately 16-30 and ministry with them is called “pastoral juvenil.”
The USCCB recognizes these categories and understands the vastness of this age demographic. What unites them all is their youthful enthusiasm and energy, but also the challenges of transition and discovery. Youth and Young Adult and Pastoral Juvenil ministries celebrate the excitement and optimistic outlook of younger generations and offers pastoral care for those in transition.
