Initially, this group was formed in 1994 by the heads of different youth organizations in the parish namely Daniel Villoria, Michael Sibayan, Jun Villaluz, Chad Hizon and Dan Rulloda in order to coordinate their various activities. In 1996, they named the “Council of Youth” and they opened it to all the youth in the parish.

In 1996-1999, COY was headed by Daniel Villoria. COY had a special project called Halo-Halong Palaro for all parish workers: sports and fun games. On the evening of December 5, 1998, a free variety show entitled, 98 (degrees) Fiesta Nights was held especially for the youth to learn to have “wholesome fun”. It was organized by the COY who asked both homegrown talents and some professionals as well to lend their hands in celebrating our fiesta. There were dancing groups of both boys and girls, choir presentations and the surprise find of the night, a band composed of some “retired” sacristans who really rocked the night.

 In 1999-2001, Joy Cleofas headed the COY. In 1999, the functions of the organizations are to help in the parish activities and to attend to the different ministries which are mostly composed of youths in the parish like the LCCG, MAS and MLM. They spearheaded the Fiesta Variety Show entitled “Magandang Fiesta Bayan”. They also had a Tiangge as a fund raising project.

 In 2001, the group’s function was to coordinate and lead Youth activities within PMIC. Significant activities/ new implementations: Members mainly come from the Medallion Choir, Voices in Praise, LCCG and MOAS but is open to all Youth in the Parish; The COY has been active in Quezon City South District meeting and seminars as well as being involved in coordinating with Sto. Niño Vicariate Youth who were advised by the Parish Priest, Fr. Dennis Soriano; COY projects have been the Holy Wednesday Grand Stations of the Cross, a dramatic reenactment and procession around the parish, Summer Palarong Kabataan Inter-Village Basketball Competition, a 3-day Youth Encounter in September – one of the first Formation programs for the COY, organizing the Fiesta T-shirt Design Contest, Halo-Halong Palaro 2001 in November and Fiesta Variety Show; and COY was also tapped to assist during the monthly Free Medical Clinics and Special Dental Missions by organizing the patients during the registration process.

 In 2002-2006, Joy Lapuz headed the COY. The activities then were Lakas Kabataan – sportsfest for the youth; reorganization of COY to PYM (Parish Youth Ministry); Halo-Halong Palaro for the Youth and Acoustic Nights with the Youth.

 In 2007, new core group members were appointed. It was headed by Diane Maling and other members were Michelle Macusi (PACT), Larraine Amanquiton (LCCG), Henry Gacosta (MLM) and Yves Bañas (MOAS). The programs that were implemented are as follows: Youth Assembly; Diocesan Youth Day; PPCRV Volunteers for 2007 Election; YOVIS 2007; Tambayan “OctoberFest”; Vicariate Living Rosary; and Youth Concert.

 Before 2007 ended, Larraine Amanquiton headed the ministry. Under her leadership, youth who are not members of parish ministries from the different zones of the parish were encouraged to join. The ministry was able to participate actively in the different programs of the Diocese and Vicariate. On-going formation programs and recreational activities are being conducted for the youth of the PMIC community up to now.
