OCY MISSIONARIES

About

OCY Missionaries is a missionary program offered by the Office of Catholic Youth in the Archdiocese of Toronto. In 2022 a partnership was created by the OCY, the Archdiocese of Toronto and HopeStone Catholic Formation. A team of passionate people came together with the idea to unite previous missionaries known as RE:GEN and HopeStone, with the goal of pursuing Christ together and reaching more young people with the Gospel message.

Vision

To form a strong and faithful Catholic community within the Archdiocese of Toronto. An on-going calling forth from the diocese; immersing, mentoring, training and equipping disciples within the diocese to be sent out.

Responding to Luke 10:2 "He said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest."

Our Mission

Mission

Our mission is to be connected in pursuit of Christ; connecting hearts one soul at a time and to bring others to an encounter with the risen Lord.

OCY RETREAT MISSIONARIES: Traveling across the Archdiocese of Toronto and beyond, ministering and connecting to young people in grades 5 - 12 in schools and parishes. Sharing the life-giving message of authentic love, identity, faith, perseverance and hope. Giving opportunities to young people to pursue their relationship with God and each other. Reaching these students during retreats, workshops, conferences and more!

OCY CAMPUS MISSIONARIES: Campus Missionaries serve as part of a chaplaincy team on University/College campuses; we encounter, mentor and accompany post-secondary students, sharing our faith with a spirit of evangelization.

BECOME A CO-MISSIONARY

Join the mission and help us serve. Missionaries are a team of individuals that fundraise their own salaries. Through the generosity of people like you, these missionaries have been able to reach thousands of youth in the last few years. If you are able to offer any support to help these young adults continue to inspire the future, please consider making a donation. No amount is too small, and each and every donation makes a difference. Become invested in the mission, the missionaries and those being blessed by the work. We are very thankful for our supporters!

EVANGELIZE

We are all disciples called to witness. Becoming a OCY Missionary is a way for you to intentionally take a year (or more) out of your life and dedicate it to evangelization. If you feel called to witness on campus to College or University students or if you feel called toward speaking to elementary and high school students about faith, authentic love, purpose and our connection with God - please reach out to us to find out more about our mission.

TRANSFORM

All of our missionaries - both retreat and campus receive thorough training and ongoing mission support. We want to equip those called to serve as part of this mission to be the best they can possibly be. It has been our experience that missionaries receive as much as they give when they allow the Lord to transform their lives through a year of service.
