Program Timing: As Soon As Possible / Location: Asia

Come share the joy of the Gospel in Asia! We are a Catholic lay mission that serves in different regions of Asia through a diverse ministry of evangelization, faith formation, and social justice. Help others encounter Christ through Bible studies, prayer groups, holy hour – happy hour, hikes, retreats, movie nights, feeding the homeless, and simply walking with someone in need and witnessing to Christ’s mercy and love along their journey of faith. Become the saint you are called to be in the mission field!

Our formation/training program starts in the S.F. Bay Area January 24, 2020. Applications are due by December 15, 2019. Contact at sally@laymissionary.org.

This unique 3-month program is intended to familiarize lay Catholics with the experience of missionary life in Asia. During your time in Asia, you will have the opportunity to engage in various short-term ministries with young adults, while serving as a bold and compassionate witness of your faith amidst the excitement and challenges of a foreign culture.

Participation in the Spring Mission Experience is an excellent way to discern if you are called to serve as a novice lay missionary in our year program.
