The aim of CAM Youths is the formation of Christian Life Communities, made up of men and women of discernment for apostolic service in all spheres of life, especially where lay people are most actively engaged: family, profession, politics, education, etc. Each community is seen as a life-long accompaniment to each individual member. The life of each community is to be characterised and lived out on three core principles, namely friendship, spirituality and service. Mission or service: the effectiveness of the community is directly related to the amount of energy it is giving up into sharing itself with others. This is done both through personal and group initiatives, with special emphasis laid on the fundamental option for the poor and needy, again in line with MSSP traditions, charisma and spirituality. Such service cannot take place outside the context of friendship and spirituality.
