About Us

The basic component of YATOL is a team, consisting of up to 12 young adults, an accompanying married couple (usually part of the Teams of Our Lady movement), and a spiritual advisor.

Each team meets on a monthly basis. During meetings, the team shares a special meal. Everyone has the opportunity to grow together in faith through prayer, meditation on scripture, topic discussion and personal sharing. It essentially becomes your "home away from home."

Team members can differ greatly in their personal and spiritual experiences, level of faith, culture, way of life and undertakings yet they become a family in Christ. Members are: 

  • Post high school to 30 years of age.

  • Unmarried, no children


The National headquarters is located in Hanford, California. This is where the National Secretariat operates. Currently YATOL can be found in the Central Valley of California. If you would like more information on how to bring YATOL to your area, please contact us!

"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."
