We offer a variety of programs and initiatives aimed at accompanying the Hispanic youth of the Southeast in their journey with and towards God through formation, communion and evangelization. The Southeast Pastoral Institute seeks to promote a pastoral action from young people and for young people, in which, through self-knowledge and recognition of their identity in God, they can play the role that corresponds to them in today's world while drawing others closer to God.

Every year since 1980, the young people who participate in this process produce a book in which they apply the Paschal Mystery to a theme that they themselves choose and that they consider to be important and topical in their own lives. The Process consists of 4 meetings that extend over several months of the year, usually from May to February or March. Participants receive the book at the last workshop and are sent to use it in their dioceses and groups.

As of the year 2022, there were modifications in the format based on the needs and opinions of young people. The contents of the book were divided into two dimensions: the personal guide and the leader's guide.

The personal guide is presented in the printed material with a variety of sections that promote reflection by the individual youth. To learn about the sections of the personnel guide: Click here (coming soon)

The leader's guide seeks to offer activities and dynamics that allow young people, from a leadership position, to be able to implement it in their community. To see the sections of the leader's guide: Click here (coming soon)
