Youth Mission Trips - Glenmmary Sisters
Customized mission experiences for Catholic Youth Groups
The purpose of the Glenmary Sisters youth program is to
give Catholic youth groups an opportunity to answer their baptismal call to
be missionaries. Each mission trip is customized in that you can
select which mission area and what type project will be the most beneficial
for your group.
Group Volunteer Program at the Glenmary Farm
A unique opportunity to experience missionary service in Appalachia
For over 30 years, the Glenmary Farm and
Glenmary Home Missioners have been an intergral part of life in
Lewis County, one of the poorest
counties in Kentucky. The work of Farm volunteers has had a tremendous
impact on this area and has earned the respect and support of the local
community where, until recent years, anti-Catholic sentiment still ran high.
The Glenmary Farm volunteer program is designed for groups of
Catholics 16 and older. All volunteers must be at least high school juniors.
Besides groups from high schools and colleges, we also accept parish youth
and young-adult groups. Responsible adult chaperones or advisors must
accompany each group.
Quite simply, our purpose is to provide life-changing,
Christ-centered youth mission opportunities. This is our reason for being.
We create extraordinarily fun and significant mission adventures, targeted
to the needs and capabilities of youth, ages 12-19. By crossing borders of
race and culture, and by placing students outside their comfort zones, we
find something wonderful happens: God gets their attention! Without the
distractions of everyday life, God uses YouthWorks to work in the lives of
thousands of teenagers. By attempting to be faithful to our purpose, we find
God is also at work in each of the communities we serve. Yea God!
Now in it's 6th year, The SHINE Catholic
work camp is fast becoming the work camp of choice by many Catholic youth
groups. With an awesome team of young adults led by Augie & Dawn Leal, lives
are being turned around. This is not your ordinary work camp. This camp was
specifically designed with that "retreat feel" for those youth ministers and
teens who are looking to go into a deeper relationship with Christ. Every
SHINE consists of daily Mass, 4 days of service, nightly praise and worship
with an awesome praise band, cool skits with the "God Squad", nightly youth
group prayer, great presenters, a concert with one of today's top
Contemporary Christian Artists, an evening of Adoration and a day of fun
and play. Now how's that for a "retreat"? Look below to find out more about
the work camp and how we can help your youth group "SHINE".
