Catholic Youth Organization

Celebrating 75 years of Catholic values in youth programs


Founded in 1939, the Catholic Youth Organization was created to provide an opportunity for children attending our grade schools, high schools and parishes to become involved in programs that integrate the teachings of the Catholic faith.  Prayer and the recognition of the importance of God in our lives continues to set the CYO apart from other organizations serving youth.  

Whether it is a competition between players on a diamond, field or court or between musical instrumentalists, chess players or student scientists, we compete with compassion and respect for one another.  Even an experience at CYO Camp Rancho Framasa is framed by reflection upon the beauty of God's creation.  

The CYO was formed to partner with our parishes in helping youth to live their faith each and every day through participation in one or all of our programs.  Your support has made this possible.  


Please consider making a gift today to continue to serve the children in our community.  We appreciate your support!  THANK YOU!
