AGE 18-29 MISSIONARY DISCIPLE

LOOKING TO GROW IN YOUR CATHOLIC FAITH? 
WISHING TO TAKE A FAITH JOURNEY ALONGSIDE OTHER YOUNG PEOPLE?

Thank you for considering an application to the Missionary Disciple program at Santiago Retreat Center. Over the years, young adults have entered our gates in different capacities to deepen their relationship with Christ and minister to the youth of Orange County. It is my pleasure to introduce our newly formed Missionary Disciple program for young people to grow in faith, live in community, and engage the Catholic mission of evangelization set before us in the Gospels.

 

In the apostolic exhortation Evangelii Gaudium (The Joy of the Gospel), Pope Francis reminds us of our duty as Missionary Disciples: to share Christ’s love with each person we encounter. Here at Santiago Retreat Center, we offer young people the opportunity to take up this call and step into our mission of evangelization through the newly  designed 15 month Missionary Disciple Program, which begins in June and extends until August of the following year.

Santiago Retreat Center’s Missionary Disciple Program rests on three pillars: 

faith formation, intentional community, and joyful work. In unity, these three pillars are directed toward Santiago Retreat Center's mission of evangelization.Faith formation is at the center of the Missionary Disciple program. 

Missionary Disciples walk their “Camino”, or journey, at Santiago Retreat Center together. They live together, work and study together, and pray together.  As a result, they come to address a central question of our faith lives: How do we build relationships with others upon Christ? Prayer is the bedrock of intentional community for the Missionary Disciples. 

At Santiago Retreat Center, Missionary Disciples are called to joyful work: work of mind and hands that gives glory to God. The central work of Missionary Disciples is to evangelize.
