Quick Reference

The association of factory workers in the RC Church known as Jeunesse Ouvrière Chrétienne (JOC) or ‘Young Christian Workers’. The movement grew out of the groups gathered by J.-L. Cardijn in and around Brussels after the 1914–18 war and received Papal approbation in 1925. In 1926 it spread to France and has expanded worldwide. It encourages young workers to develop their self-awareness and to take responsibility for converting colleagues.
