YOUTH MISSIONARY INTERN
Youth Ministry, FT Intern
Our Lady Star of the Sea Parish (Bremerton, WA)
***VISIT US AT THE STEUBENVILLE JOB FAIR MARCH 26***
Do you have a heart for young people? Do you want to live out the New Evangelization as a Missionary Disciple?
Immerse yourself in a thriving parish community that is centered on the Eucharist while serving as a missionary to youth and young adults in a city that is ripe for evangelization.
Our Lady Star of the Sea of the Sea parish is seeking zealous young adult Catholics, ages 19-25 who are willing to dedicate nine to twelve months of their life to missionary service to evangelize both those within our parish who are Catholic but have never truly embraced a relationship with Christ as well as those outside our parish who have no connection to Christ or his Church.
Missionary Interns serve in teams and are provided training, room, meals, living expenses as well as mentoring and a chance to be a part of the life of a parish that is both dedicated to the reverent celebration of the Sacred Liturgy and evangelistic in its mission.
Missionary interns will work both within existing parish ministries as well as help launch new outreaches. Their goal is to build relationships with youth and young adults, win them to Christ by word and example and help them begin a journey of discipleship.
Existing ministries they will work within include:
• Males: The Fraternus discipleship/mentoring ministry for guys grades 6-12
• Females: The Fidelis discipleship/mentoring ministry for girls grades 6-12
• The Peer Leaders program for High School Juniors and Seniors
• High School Youth Ministry (Y Disciple)
• Middle School Youth Group (Edge)
• Young Adult Ministry
Missionaries also reach outside of the parish communities through:
• Participation in a community youth program
• Retreats and Youth Rallies
• Short term evangelistic Bible Studies for young adults
Missionary Interns grow personally and spiritually through:
• Daily Mass and regular reception of the Sacrament of Penance
• Eucharistic Holy Hours (perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is available)
• Spiritual Direction
• Fellowship and recreation time with the missionary team and other young adult discipleship leaders in the Seattle area
• Directed spiritual reading
• Theological formation through a weekly Bible Study or seminar of their choice
• Sabbath Days (normally Mondays) with opportunities for hiking and outdoor recreation in the Puget Sound area, Olympic and Cascade Mountains as well as cultural opportunities in Seattle.
• Opportunities for recreational travel along the West Coast of the US and British Columbia
Missionary Interns will build professional ministerial skills through:
• St. John Bosco Conference at Steubenville University
• SEEK (FOCUS) Conference in Nashville, TN
• Missionary Intern Orientation
• Mentoring in Youth Ministry
• Practical experience of working in a parish
• Helping lead retreats and trips to regional youth conferences and conventions
• Seattle Archdiocese Safe Environment Training
As this is a service/volunteer position, a salary and benefits are not provided, however all job and living expenses are provided as well as a team vehicle and no fundraising is required.
