Youth Apostolate and UAPs
Recently, the youth apostolate of the Peruvian
Province has also sought to take up the UAPs adopted by the Society of Jesus.
This is why the National Youth Pastoral Commission has made a commitment to
strengthen the three other preferences in its work. These preferences, as we
have just seen, are already present in the projects of the different groups,
but their global spirit could inspire the whole youth project of the Jesuits in
– Showing the way to God, through discernment and
Spiritual Exercises: fostering the experience of personal and communal
discernment in the formation of youth.
– Accompanying the poor and the excluded: giving
priority to personal encounter with those who live on the fringes of society
and favoring social transformation.
– Collaborate in caring for our Common Home: through a
deep ecological conversion and through advocacy in other youth spaces.
