Lay Missions


Hi everyone!

For several years now, I’ve felt a very strong calling to become a missionary. I’ve searched high and low on the internet for different opportunities for youth missionary work. I’ve found the Sisters of the Lord and the Virgin of Matara who hold lay missions, and I emailed them for more information. Do you have any other suggestions of where to look? My Church does not have many youth, and does not have any kind of program for missionary work.

Thank you for your suggestions!

God bless!


Are you looking for a local missionary team that does outreach in your area or more like an overseas missions trip?

If you are looking for a local missionary team, look up St. Park Street Evangelization and see if they have a chapter near you. Their website is If there isn’t a chapter near you, you can start one.


My original intention was the latter, but I am definitely interested in the former!

I have looked up Street Evangelization before, and I unfortunately don’t have one near me. I have also looked into starting one near me. Thank you for reminding me of it!


Have you looked into Maryknoll?


Thank you very much!! I checked out the website and found 2 more off of it! :thumbsup:
