These local missions can be for a day, a weekend or even for a week! See the steps below to walk you through the process. The Mission Team is here to help you at any step you need a little extra assistance.
A mission day starts with discovering a real need within your own community that you would like to serve... what needs have you noticed that move your heart?
Connect with local organizations to ask them how you can help!
A mission is never done alone! And it is not just to divide the work. A mission springs from a Catholic community that desires to go out & witness to God's Love.
All those involved with our mission need to be registered volunteers. Please take a few minutes to register all your volunteers here, especially if your mission involves minors.
For any important event, we take time to prepare... the same goes for a day we want to share God with others. Starting a mission can seem intimidating & we're here to help you!
Mission training could be talking to the local charity you are partnering with or it could be contacting the Mission Team to access our videos, resources or set up a phone call.
The exciting moment has come! Pick your mission day!
Please register your Mission Day with Mission Youth! This is very important for us... it allows us to track the mission activity, learn better how we can support you, keep you in our prayers & for liability purposes!
A schedule for your mission day helps you make sure you can meet your objectives in the day.
Our Mission days are based on the charism of Regnum Christi & always include a few key elements.
Download a sample Mission Day schedule below!
Our mission days have both spiritual & material elements: we take time to pray, to eat, to serve, to have fun.
Make sure your mission has what it needs to be a success! Most day missions charge $15 per person to cover the cost of food, gas, liability insurance, etc.
It's shopping time!
Depending on what your mission is, your list will look different: PB & J for the homeless? water bottles?, cross, posti's & pens?
No matter what the mission, don't forget the essential Mission Gear found at our online store.
Get the word out! Your efforts can move other hearts to get involved! Use social media, parish bulletins, & word of mouth!
Sometimes, those we invite can't join us in person on the mission day - don't forget to invite them to pray for the mission, to help you promote it or given, give a donation to make it possible!
Your missionaries are going to need a way to see what your mission is about, sign up and sign all the necessary paperwork. You can use Mission Youth's page or set up your own.
Whatever registration system you choose to follow, what is most important are those signed consent forms you can access when you register your mission.
Mission Youth is committed to maintaining a safe environment for all our missionaries & those we serve. Please reference our Safe Environment Policy & reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
Please make sure you know, communicate and uphold Mission Youth standards during your day mission.
