Team Member Testimonials
Q: Who can apply?
A: The Catholic School of Evangelization considers non-married, practicing Catholics between the ages of 18-30 for their program. Applicants must be at least turning 18 before the end of the September of the mission year that they are applying for (Ex. Sally is applying for the 2015-2016 mission year and he was born on September 27th, 1997. She is currently 17 but will turn 18 before she starts the ministry portion of the Outreach mission year.)
Q: When can I apply?
A: You may send in your application as early as November 1st for application of the following year. (Ex. If you would like to serve in 2016-2017, you can send in your application beginning November 1, 2015). You may not apply two years in advance. This is because much can happen in a person’s life in one year and we need the most up-to-date information about our applicants as possible.
Q: Do I have to be Catholic?
A: Yes. Since Outreach missionaries ministers in Catholic schools and parishes, team members must be practicing Catholics.
Q: I'm from outside of Canada, can I still apply?
A: Yes but depending on border/visa conditions you may not be eligible to volunteer as an Outreach missionary and therefore would not be accepted. For anymore questions please contact us!
Q: What will I be doing?
A: Outreach Team members invite youth to know and follow Jesus. They receive two months of intensive faith formation and ministry training. Outreach members then go throughout Canada bringing the Godpel to youth in schools, parishes, aboriginal reserves, youth detention centres etc. It is a great year of spiritual growth and action.
Q: Will I be able to go home throughout the year for (insert reason here)?
A: If an Outreach team member has an event to attend (ex. weddings, funerals, etc.) they will be given permission to return home upon the approval of the Outreach Coordinator. Outreach Team members will also be given occasional weekends to go home, as well as a break through the Christmas holidays.
