Young people need a strength and potential much stronger than their own, because this strength is of Christ's age and its roots stretch back thousands of years.
Indeed, the treasure of young people draws from the treasure of the Church, just as the treasure of the Church is enriched by the treasure of young people who are in perpetual renewal.” Bishop Ibrahim M. Ibrahim
To place young people at the forefront of the Church's mission, for they are the very present of this Church.
To guide them on the path of Christ so that they may be enriched by Him and with Him they may reach their full potential. They will then be able to enrich their communities by sharing what they have acquired.
Mandated by the Melkite Catholic Bishop of Canada, Most Reverend Ibrahim M. Ibrahim, the CMYA will serve as a support for all the parishes of the Eparchy in their mission with the Youth (17-35 years old).
The association is committed to provide support, tools, and resources (religious, social, educational, and humanitarian programs) to all those who work in the mission with Youth to form Christian missionary disciples in the light of the Melkite tradition.
