Inspired by the Redemptive Charism of St. John DeMatha.
The Trinitarians have been involved in Youth Ministry Locally, Nationally and Internationally.
In each house of the Vice-Province in India, special focus is given to providing spiritual, psychological, social and educational needs for these young people. Currently, two of our Fathers serve as chaplains for the Jesus Youth Movement. One, as the National Chaplain for Teens’ Ministry and the other as the Chaplain of the International Formation Team of Jesus Youth, where they help out with retreats and different animation programs for these youth. Many times, participants reach out for personal guidance and growth sessions
The DeMatha Boys’ Home is a project specifically for the benefit of tribal young men from the Northeastern States of India. The primary goal is to provide selected young men the opportunity for higher education not available in their particular locality or family life. Boys who have completed Class X are brought to the Trinitarian campus in Bangalore. Here they receive basic coaching in social skills, the English language, catechetical training, etc. Upon completion, they are admitted to higher secondary education or undergraduate program as per the requirement.
Impoverished young adults migrate from North India and North East (Where Christians are being persecuted) in search of better employment opportunities; however, without job training or skills, their quest for work and a brighter future is unsuccessful.
