CLU and Student Youth

"Christianity is a new life, it’s a new way of living, which is to say of perceiving, of judging, of feeling, of reacting and of manipulating things. It is a new way of life, a new way of living, not individually but essentially as a community. So, that the Church is present in an environment means that in that environment the Christian community is present as life, that the Christians live the life of that environment in everything, honestly, in every detail, live the interests that make up that environment, but from another point of view. It means that this other world is present in the world."
(Luigi Giussani, A Presence in the Environment, 1964)

University students (CLU)

Communion and Liberation University (CLU) refers to students participating in the charism of Communion and Liberation who live and study in the university environment. Along with a lived friendship on a day-to-day basis, we propose weekly meetings of School of Community and charitable work to help build this awareness. We also participate in the Beginning of the Year Day in October, the Weekend with Carrón at the beginning of January, a Study Weekend in the Spring and the UK community’s summer holiday at the end of July.

Groups are present in several universities around the UK, such as Cambridge, Oxford, UCL, King's, Imperial, Reading, Warwick, Liverpool, Glasgow, Edinburgh, etc. In London, the CLU School of Community takes place on Thursday evenings.

Student youth (GS)

GS Student Youth began in the friendship that flourished between Fr. Giussani and a group of high school students in Milan; sixty years later, that friendship has spread throughout the world to 70 countries, including the United Kingdom.

In the UK, a Student Youth group has been growing since 2011, as an instrument to help secondary school students accompany each other in their faith and to help each other understand how to live the particulars of faith within all the various aspects of daily life.

Student Youth welcomes secondary school students from Year 7 to Year 13. We meet approximately once a month throughout the academic year to go on countryside hikes, to play games, chat and study together.
