Saint Paul's Outreach (SPO) reaches college students around the country, bringing them to Christ and the fullness of the Catholic faith. We build evangelistic communities that provide a unique quality and depth of formation in the Catholic faith and life.
WHO WE WANT
As an SPO Missionary you will be on the “front lines” evangelizing university students on one or more of our campuses.
RADICAL Catholic Disciples of Jesus Christ
BOLD WITNESSES filled with the Spirit
SERVANT LEADERS who are joyful & generous
WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING
REACHING out to college students on campus through authentic friendships and a healthy college community
CALLING (college students/young adults) to embrace salvation in Christ
FORMING tomorrow's leaders to maturity in the Catholic faith so they embrace it for themselves
SENDING these individuals out as new Missionaries to their peers
WHY WE NEED YOU
"I prefer a church which is BRUISED, HURTING & DIRTY because it has been out on the streets, rather than a Church which is unhealthy from being confined and from clinging to its own security... if something should rightly disturb us and trouble our consciences, it is the fact that SO MANY OF OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS ARE LIVING OUT THE STRENGTH, LIGHT AND CONSOLATION BORN OF FRIENDSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST. WITHOUT A COMMUNITY OF FAUTH TO SUPPORT THEM, WITHOUT MEANING AND A GOAL IN LIFE."
"More than by fear of going astray, my hope is that we will be moved by the fear of remaining shut up within structures which give us false sense of security, within rules which make us harsh judges, within habits which make us feel safe, while at our door people are starving and JESUS DOES NOT TIRE OF SAYING TO US: 'GIVE THEM SOMETHING TO EAT'" (MARK 6:37) Pope Francis
