Its founders

Two French people: Patrick and Béatrice François. They have more than 40 years of full-time experience in the Church, including 35 in youth ministry. They initiated and developed, with those in the field and young people, projects to announce the Gospel to adolescents, students and young professionals in several regions of the world. They recognized a call confirmed by several Church leaders to found this new project serving young people: Ziléos.

Canonical recognition

The Catholic diocese of Créteil (France) has given Ziléos the canonical status of a private association of the faithful under diocesan law with an ecumenical openness.

An international association

Ziléos exists in Canada, France, Romania, Switzerland, Lebanon and soon in other countries. International exchanges allow us to be connected, to open new paths and to learn from our differences in a rapidly changing world.

An ecumenical dimension

Ziléos believes in the unity of Christians (Catholics, Protestants, Orthodox). This is why the association is open to Christians of all faiths to experience this unity and build a more just and fraternal world.

An interreligious dimension

In its club meetings, Ziléos, a Christian association, also welcomes young people of other religions. She does this with respect for differences, with a desire for dialogue. Ziléos welcomes all young people who ask questions and want to travel with others. No judgment, no search for conversion. Everyone is respected for who they are. Ziléos seeks, when it can, to collaborate with movements or associations of other religions.
