World Youth Parliament (WYP) is a forum where young people, whatever their ideology, culture, or social condition might be, can come together to discuss issues that concern them and manifest their conclusion in such way that their voice may be heard worldwide.
We meet every first and fourth Sunday of the month from 4:30pm to 6:00pm in the Faith Formation Center (Room 201).
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE? This is for young people 17-30 years of age.
Come and Join Us!
Meet our Ambassadors.

Hi, my name is James Keating. I am 24 years old and studied Criminal Justice at Nassau Community College. I enjoy watching football (Go Saints) and playing video games in my spare time. Being a member of the World Youth Parliament has given me the opportunity to hear more of the other members perspectives during the discussions from the manifesto and has created a space for open dialogue on the various topics. As WYP Ambassador, I intend to grow our membership and get more people interested in attending our meetings through different events and announcements throughout the parish.
Hi, my name is Emely Arias. I am 22 years old and I currently work as an Analyst for a marketing firm. In my free time I enjoy singing, dancing and working out. WYP is a group that allows people with different perspectives to come together to solve worlds issues. When I had the pleasure of going to the inplenary session in Spain, I was able to meet others who had a different background, come together and talk about creating peace in todays world. The experience will always hold a special place in my heart and has allowed me to make friends in different parts of the world. I am excited to take on this position as ambassador and I hope to encourage others to join.
