We are the Filipino Youth Apostolate from the Archdiocese of New York. The FYA is made up of Filipino youth and young adults from different parishes throughout New York dedicated to the mission of evangelization. In collaboration with parish groups and other youth ministries, we hold recollections and retreats throughout the year and assist in Filipino masses in various parishes. Our pride and joy is our choir.

The mission and goals of the Filipino Youth Apostolate of the Archdiocese of New York (FYA) are based on the commandment of our Lord Jesus to love God and to love our neighbor. (cf. Luke 10:27).

Based on these principles, our Mission and Apostolate are summarized:

The First is to promote spiritual growth and strengthen our personal relationship with God. The Second is to spread the teachings of Jesus to other young people through our ministries.

We take our Blessed Virgin Mother, under the title of our Mother of Perpetual Help, as our Model and Protectress. We ask her guidance in accomplishing our work and goals in the Church.

We have a special dedication and gratitude to His Holiness, Pope John Paul II, in inspiring the youths of the world to be the saints of the new millennium. Finally, we thank our late archbishop, John Cardinal O'Connor for establishing the Filipino Apostolate.
