What is YATOL?

Young Adult Teams of Our Lady (YATOL) is an international young adult association of spiritual formation by, with and for young adults that offers its members avenues for Christian and personal growth. Through prayer, sharing and study, members search and deepen the values to discern life's choices. For this, the movement entrusts itself to Mary, choosing her as a model of openness and availability to the work of the Holy Spirit.


The purpose of YATOL is to help its members to live the double dimension of the Christian life: Being with Christ and sent on a mission into everyday life.


"I feel that YATOL has been a huge boost in my spiritual and prayer life. I have always been active in my church, but YATOL has taught me to truly engage and dig deeper into what it means to be Catholic. Both Christ and Mary have had such a personal impact in my life this year, and YATOL has exposed all of the blessings I receive. But also those I fail to see or acknowledge. It has been eye-opening in many ways, and I feel more prepared and confident to defend my faith."
