The Young Disciples Apostolate begins with a training period
of 17 days, which includes:
o 10 hours of Methodology
o 15 hours of Catechesis and Foundations of the Faith.
o 30 hours of Camp Preparation, including overview of all lessons and camp components they will teach over the summer
o 15 hours on Team Life
o 20 hours of Spiritual Life Formation
o 45 hours of on the road training with a full time supervisor
The teams will have on-going supervisor visits
and telephone calls, as well as, correspondence with staff at the Pastoral
Center throughout the summer. They have additional training halfway through the
summer and at the end of summer.
Furthermore, their life of service to the
Church and one another to bring all to heaven continues after their
summer. Many Young Disciples
missionaries have joined seminary and religious life. Others have used their
skills while raising their own families. Many others have become youth
ministers, DREs, volunteer catechists, and long-term missionaries.
Following is a pictorial essay of the Young Disciples. As the adage goes, "A picture is worth a thousand words."
