Emmaus Journey-Poland Mission Trip 2017
YOUNG ADULTS ANSWERING THE CALL
“Caritas Christi urget nos” (2 Cor 5:14): it is the love of Christ that fills our hearts and impels us to evangelize. Today as in the past, he sends us through the highways of the world to proclaim his Gospel to all the peoples of the earth (cf. Mt 28:19). *
Emmaus Journey, a lay ministry of Catholic Evangelization and Discipleship, has the privilege of partnering with the Catholic Oaza camp program offered through the Roman Catholic Diocese of Świdnica, Poland. Each year, we send young adults from parishes in the U.S. to provide an enriching faith experience for children ages 9 – 17.
These exceptional young adults (missioners) present a Catholic Vacation Bible School program and teach English to the children along with the informal time immersed in the “camp” experience. Following their mission work they visit several important historical sites following in the footsteps of Saint John Paul II. This important location for evangelization is an outgrowth of the earnest prayer he had for his country.
This mission work results in transformational “conversion” for the young adults and children at the camp as they embrace and go deeper in their faith and assists in developing strong Catholic young adult leadership to help nourish communities in the U.S.
If you connect with this mission - would you consider supporting this project finacially?
