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!  MORE INFO here

SHINE Catholic Work Camps
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".  CLICK HERE for more info


Choose the camp that best fits your group:
Three different camp experiences,
each fine-tuned for you and your group to grow
closer to God while serving others.
