The strength of the movement is its special focus on a Christ centered life on the Lord Jesus Christ: beginning with an experience of God nourished by prayer, the Word of God, the sacraments and fellowship, and sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with others. Though not an actual community, Jesus Youth is a network of small but vibrant groups of young people. In their own life situations, they strive to give time to the Lord, responding to the challenges of today’s world in the power of the Holy Spirit. This is the strength of Jesus Youth Ministry in Mar Ephraem. Every Friday, the students forgo one meal a day and spend the time in the Chapel praying for the youth of the world.
