17 Apr High School Mission
Prayer and Action Denver: A mission experience in the Archdiocese of Denver
Prayer & Action is a Catholic youth ministry program in the Archdiocese of Denver that gives teenagers an experience of mission work within the bounds of the Archdiocese. St. Scholastica will be participating in the high school mission at St. John the Baptist, Longmont July 22 -17.
Prayer & Action missions last five days; the participants arrive on Sunday evening and stay until Friday morning. Throughout the week the participants paint, clean, do yard work, and perform other meaningful tasks for the poor, disabled, and elderly. The students spend the week in an atmosphere that is free of distractions. This fosters their faith, inspires charity, and leads them closer to Christ. The experience also allows them to get to know other high school students from other parts of the Archdiocese who share their Catholic faith.
The Prayer & Action experience is facilitated by the Mission Team which consists of dynamic young adults. This team and the parish adult leaders are with the students at the worksites, working side-by-side with them. In the evenings the team leads Collatio, the retreat portion of Prayer & Action. Collatio is perhaps the most important part of the day as the students prayer, play, worship, and grow together in Jesus Christ.
