A few days ago, Father João Chagas, head of our Dicastery’s Youth Office, met with Fr. Frédéric Fornos and Fr. Luis Ramirez, respectively director and assistant of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network and the Eucharistic Youth Movement (MEG).

During this meeting, held at the General Curia of the Jesuits, the work being done by the MEG in many countries throughout the world was presented.

The Eucharistic Youth Movement, faithful to its origins connected to the foundations of the Apostolate of Prayer, today attests its presence in over 50 countries on the five continents. It defines its specific identity as a movement that—the promoters explain— “aims to gradually form boys, adolescents, and young friends of Christ, at the service of the Church and of man.”
