Mission Youth


Mission Youth, engaging young people, adults and families, exists to spread Christ’s love through missions in the US and abroad serving communities in their specific needs. The encounter with Christ, others, and ourselves transforms and empowers us and those we serve.

What does this look like in Chicago?

In Chicago over 100 missionaries came together for an amazing experience of service over Holy Week. On Holy Thursday we had a 7 Church bus pilgrimage. Southwest suburban churches were visited by Legionaries of Christ, as well as families from East Lake Academy, Everest Academy, and the Regnum Christi men’s and women’s sections.

On Good Friday we held a CrossWalk (Stations of the Cross) through downtown Lemont.  Missionaries gathered prayer intentions from the community.

On Holy Saturday, missionaries gathered to fill 100+ buckets of hope (disaster cleaning supplies) and make 300 lunches for a homeless shelter in Joliet. They also prepared and served lunch to homeless and those in need in Chicago at Pacific Garden Missions.

“The events and mission opportunities remind us of the tremendous need for God in this world. Seeing others suffer in mind, body and spirit draws out goodness and generosity. While the suffering are shown the love of Christ, the missionaries find purpose.”
