John Noronha started a youth wing named "Catholic Yuvaka Sanga" (Catholic Youth Association) considering the youth to be the backbone of our society.The main thrust of this movement was service through Leadership. In the year 1976 August 15th this movement came into existence under the able guidance of their parish priest Rev Fr. John Noronha & the other priests and under the able leadership of Mr. Henry Rosario the first president of this movement.
