ECYD is an international Catholic association of adolescents who make a pledge of friendship with Christ and with each other
to build up a new world according to the Gospel. They are adolescents who live the charism of the Regnum Christi movement. The name “ECYD” is an acronym that represents “encounters, convictions, your decisions”, and is used as such globally, independent of a country’s language. The name denotes the dynamic of ECYD’s life: through different experiences of encounter, adolescents acquire firm life convictions and learn to make free and responsible decisions according to Gospel criteria.

EC juniors Colleen Walker and Mary Beth Williams lead an ECYD team of 8th grade Everest Academy students. This week, in honor of St. Valentine’s Day, the team made valentines for the elderly at Lourdes nursing home.
