A society founded for young Catholics with the aim to cater for the spiritual needs of the young members, help them when they face problems, allow them to grow in Lord’s family, and learn to live with others and practice the spirit of Christ’s love.

RYCS was founded in 1977 with the guidance of Fr. Peter Ma due to the following reasons:

  1. The young Legion of Mary existed in HRC then was a precursor to RYCS.

  2. Young Catholics from Bentong that came to KLto study or work formed a prayer group and had weekly gatherings at the Cathedral.

  3. Fr. Peter Ma was transferred from Bentong to serve at HRC, this was followed by the Bentong youth who moved their prayer gatherings over to HRC from the Cathedral, and this allowed them to interact with the young members of Legion of Mary in HRC and friendship was developed.

  4. During the Christmas of 1976, the young Legion of Mary was invited to attend a Christmas celebration night and watch the performance by the Bentong youth. They were deeply inspired, and after some deliberation with Fr. Peter Ma, decided to form a Catholic youth society.

The objectives of RYCS are namely:

  1. To cultivate a sense of mission for the church within the youth

  2. To guide the young members to understand the purpose of life and walk the right path; and

  3. To enhance the interaction between the youth
