The Spiritan Youth Centre

The Spiritan Centre is a purpose-built youth centre in Salford. The Spiritans built and commissioned it in 2011 as a base for its youth ministry projects.

Laval Centre

(named after Jacques Laval, one of the founders of the Spiritans, a French doctor and priest who worked on the island of Mauritius in the first half of the 19th century)


The Laval Centre was formerly known as St Philip’s Church. It has since been adapted to a spacious retreat hall that can accommodate up to 60 young people. It’s a great space to host large simulation games, group meditation, drama activities, and other creative work.

Available for hire.
Des Places Centre

(named after Claude des Places, one of the founders of the Spiritans, who became well known from his “riches to rags” transformation story) 


It is a fully equipped facility with kitchen, storage, and stage area with a large hall area that can be adapted for conferences, retreats, and presentations. The Des Places Centre acted as a youth club for many years but is currently being used by Just Youth and Just Youth’s sister charity Revive, a charity working with refugees and asylum seekers in Greater Manchester. 

Available for hire.
Libermann House

(named after Francis Libermann, one of the founders of the Spiritans, a French priest who inspired thousands of missionaries across the world with his pioneering mission strategies) 


Opened in 2011, Libermann House is home to a Community consisting of Just Youth’s Spiritan Priests, Seminarians, and gap year volunteers from all around the world. With multiple private and communal spaces, including a Chapel, it is the perfect environment for Community life to blossom and thrive.


Just Youth also works externally in schools, colleges, parishes, and residential centres amongst others.
