To assist young people in finding their place in the Church, to coordinate the efforts of numerous Christian youth organizations of the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church as well as to aide  in meeting challenges with which youth is confronted are the aims of people who have undertaken  the creation of  the UGCC Christian Youth Forum. Youth from the Lviv Metropolitanate, Ternopil-Zboriv Archeparchy and Sambir-Drohobych Eparchy were delegated by their peers in March to create a UGCC Christian Youth Forum. Some of the specified main spiritual needs felt by today’s youth generation included a strengthening of faith and the need of examples of Christian life and witnessing that being with God offers goodness and happiness. In analyzing membership experience in communities, the UGCC Christian Youth Forum coordinators emphasized the weak cooperation between youth Christian communities, a lack of information about their activities, small participation and the scarcity of necessary means to develop oneself spiritually and socially – both individually and communally. Therefore, the first step will be spreading information about the UGCC Christian Youth Forum. By joining it, every person – as an individual or a group – will be able to find answers to questions they or their adherents have, as well as to receive assistance in realizing projects and in sharing experience – thereby, gradually transforming the milieu of Ukrainian youth. It is planned that the first opportunities to get acquainted with UGCC Christian Youth Forum will be the Festival of Ethnic and Contemporary Culture to be held on 19 May in the town of Vyshneve near Kyiv (organized by the Ukrainian Association Obnova), followed by the  All-Ukrainian and Youth Pilgrimage to Zarvanytsia on 14-15 July. Inquiries and proposals, intentions of joining the creation of the UGCC Christian Youth Forum and those desiring to register their UGCC Christian youth groups/organizations, should contact [email protected].
