Fr Georges Guérin, founder of the French JOC, (left) with a young Cardijn, probably in the late 1920s or early 1930s.

On this site, we plan to document the lives and work of some of the many, many priests from around the world who discovered Cardijn and the YCW and sought to integrate it into their ministries.

A good number of these later became bishops and even cardinals, a number of whom played key roles at the Second Vatican Council.
