What earlier generations held as sacred, remains sacred and great for us too, and it cannot be all of a sudden entirely forbidden or even considered harmful. It behooves all of us to preserve these riches.
Pope Benedict XVI on Summorum Pontificum
Introibo ad altare Dei, ad Deum qui lætificat Juventutem meam.

Our Mission

Juventutem is an international youth group founded in 2004 in fidelity to the Holy Father. It seeks to bring together young adult Catholics who are attached to the traditional forms of the Catholic worship.

In 2012, wishing to promote the sanctification of youth by means of the Roman traditions of the Catholic Church, faithful to the Church’s teaching and her authorities, and in spiritual union with those young people throughout the world who share our aspirations, the founding members of Juventutem Boston came together to incorporate themselves under the International Federation Juventutem.

The name “Juventutem” (the accusative of the Latin word for “youth”) is a reference to the prayers at the foot of the altar in the Roman Missal revised by the Blessed Pope John XXIII in 1962. “Youth” as intended by Juventutem is not in essence a matter of age, but rather of familiarity with the grace of God.

Telling of a dream which has become famous, the patron saint of Catholic youth, St John Bosco, described as “three whitenesses” the three fundamental elements of help to Christians: the Holy Eucharist, the Blessed Virgin, and the Holy Father. The young members of Juventutem profess a great love for these “three whitenesses.”

Juventutem Boston also dedicates itself to an intercessory apostolate, praying with and for our Bishops and Priests in union with His Holiness Pope Francis. We encourage you to get involved.
