The name “ECYD” is an acronym that represents “encounters, convictions, your decisions”, and is used as such globally, independent of a country’s language. The name denotes the dynamic of ECYD’s life: through different experiences of encounter, adolescents acquire firm life convictions and learn to make free and responsible decisions according to Gospel criteria.
The ECYD mission is to collaborate with Christ so that he might reign in the hearts of adolescents and in the world.
Every ECYD member lives the 5 essential elements of ECYD life:
- Prayer and the sacraments
- Team life
…which seek to be different experiences of encounter, through which the adolescent forms his convictions and decisions according to the spirituality of Regnum Christi.
What We Do
In the life of ECYD, adolescents are offered different experiences of encounter, through which they can acquire firm convictions and learn to make free and responsible decisions in accordance with Gospel criteria.
This dynamic is lived in many of these ECYD activities:
- Regular team meetings
- Courses, camps, or conventions
