The mission of YCP encourages young adults working in various professions to ‘Work in Witness for Christ,’ a challenge we all face as Catholics and one that requires support and encouragement from the community and from our peers in the faith…It is a great blessing to have ministries...that bring about the next generation of business leaders, philanthropists, and joyful, faithful, and fruitful Catholic families.

Most Reverend Gustavo García‐Siller,
M. Sp.S., Archbishop of San Antonio
