SSPX for Youth

Full experience for Catholic life

In a world filled with empty attractions, only one thing can truly satisfy us and give us lasting joy: a living faith!

Many young people abandoned the active practice of the Catholic faith in the decades following Vatican II, often to the distress of their parents. A variety of factors prompted this exodus, including the lure of materialism, religious relativism, deficient education, and the sexual revolution. None of these deceptive paths can truly make one happy.

But now many young adults are returning to the Church of Christ and the Catholic faith and are discovering profound spiritual riches, true friendships, and lasting peace and joy.

We encourage you to join us in the full experience of Catholic life!
