Have you ever thought that it would be great for young people to witness and evangelize their peers as it relates to sexuality? Five young adults have been trained in Saint Pope John Paul II’s Theology of the Body and are ready to speak about chastity at your local high schools, elementary schools and parish youth ministries. The content of these talks and how to book these speakers are readily available on our website​. Given the current climate of sex education, the Catholic message of authentic love is ever needed. Please pass on this information to your local chaplains, teachers, and school administrators.

To book a team of missionaries to come speak at your parish or school, please contact Desiree at 416-599-7676.

The Pastoral Plan encourages all parishes to “seriously consider hiring a youth minister.” The Family of Faith Campaign recognizes that “hiring staff may present significant challenges for parishes with fewer resources.” If you think your parish would benefit from this subsidy and are in a position of need, you might consider discussing this with your parish and finance councils. Part of the application will include the submission of a vision for youth ministry at your parish and a job description for a youth minister. Instructions how to apply can be found here​
