About this event

  • 4 days
  • Mobile eTicket

The CSM Street Missionary Weekend is designed to introduce young people to the life of a street missionary, sharing a life of prayer and service with others who go out into the streets bringing the love of Jesus to the homeless.

For the weekend, participants will live a communal life, praying, learning, and reaching out to our homeless friends on the streets. We will also enjoy recreational activities together. Participants will stay overnight in the church hall or office basement at St. Mary's Parish.

Who can apply?

Young adults 19-39 who would like to serve Jesus in the poor. No experience required. Training is provided. Because of the unique nature of this event and very limited number of spaces, applicants will be interviewed and asked to supply two character references. If accepted, we request a $20 donation to CSM to help cover expenses for the weekend.
