Motto of the Movement
Fight the good fight of faith

Year of Foundation 1955

Brief History
One of the most important decisions of the International Commission in Brussels in 1954 was to separate the regional work from the work on world level. This was the start to create continental YCS movements.

An assembly from the 3rd until 6th March 1955 in Vienna decided on the constitution of a biannual European Committee and the nomination of Franz-Wilhelm Heimer as first European Secretary.

During the European meeting on the 30th and 31st May 1955 in London the European orientations were elaborated, a financial basis was created and one decided to organise two summercamps in 1965, one for boys and one for girls.

In Ortenberg, from the 19th till 22nd September 1955 it was proposed to establish a European Secretariat.
So you see that between August 1954 and September 1955 most of the European structures as we know still today were created or it was decided to create them : Committee, European Secretary, European Secretariat, summercamps (since 1967 named Summerweeks), orientations, financial basis, study sessions (in the beginning integrated in the Committees).

Some aspects came later like the Statutes in October 1957 and the decision in November 1982 to organise a Congress.

F.U.C.I. – Federazione Universitaria Cattolica Italiana

Year of Foundation 1896      Year of IMCS membership 1921

Brief History
La Fuci was founded in Fiesole in 1896 and immediately entered the Italian cultural and ecclesiastical youth scene.
Its aim is to train young people through the instruments of faith and culture. The presence in Italian universities and dioceses is the fulcrum of this meeting, making it possible to experience how it is possible to put these two aspects into practice and to live the mission of university students in the light of the Gospel.
It organises cultural and spiritual appointments such as the National Congress, now in its tenth edition, the Formative Module and the Theological Week, which takes place in Camaldoli, a symbolic place of the union between faith and science.
Among the personalities linked to the Fuci we cannot but remember Aldo Moro, Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati and St. Paul VI.

Catholic Student Movement (MCE, in portuguese)


Motto of the Movement
“Students at Church and Catholics at school”

Year of Foundation 1980   Year of IMCS membership

Brief History
MCE is a Portuguese Catholic Action Movement that emerged from the Catholic University Youth (JUC) and the Catholic School Youth (JEC) in 1980.
As a Movement we seek to build an open and free space for search, confrontation, dialogue and debate, where we can express our faith, opinions and thoughts, as an expression of the Christian Faith. We are young students who question ourselves about our role in society, at school and in the Church.
In our meetings, activities and others, we seek to follow the Review of Life Method (See, Judge, Act), trying to have a critical look at what surrounds us and to take action on it, always seeking to follow the life example of Jesus Christ.
The Review of Life Method is the foundation of our Movement and we try to bring it into our lives as a way of life and a way of life as ‘students at Church and Catholics at school’.
