Prayer & Action Mission Trip

July 5th-10th, 2015
Independence, Kansas

A mission experience in your own backyard!

Prayer and Action is a summer Catholic youth ministry program for high school students where young people pray together and work together to serve those who are in need.

As Catholics, we are called to serve with love and humility. Prayer and Action is an opportunity for us to live out the Gospel message in a tangible way.  Students will join others from around the diocese for a week long mission to serve the poor and homeless of Kansas. The schedule is simple, in the mornings we will nourish our souls with Mass and our bodies with breakfast, during the day we will serve on teams in the community by painting, doing yard work and other small jobs. Finally we will recharge with evening sessions designed to inspire. Meals are served throughout the day as well.

The mission is simple Pray, Serve, and have Faith that we do all this for the glory of God. Register today by submitting the forms in the Documents Tab to the Parish office. The cost is $75 which includes room and board. Checks should be made out to the Diocese of Wichita

6:00 am Wake up

Magdalen Ambassadors of Christ

An Ambassador is an authorized messenger or representative of a state or King. Our Mission is to help train high school students to represent the unconditional love of Christ as well as to serve those in need through service, mission trips, and weekly meetings. To put it simply, we are in the business of helping today's youth become strong disciples.

Something new is coming this Fall. Beginning on Wednesday, September 10th from 6:30-8:00pm, we will be combining our MAX High School Youth Group with our High School PSR program into one event each week. All students, both those attending public and Catholic school will be invited to join us on Wednesday's for our weekly MAX meeting. There students will be able to bring their friends or meet up with them for a night of games, discipleship, fellowship, and worship. We will meet on Wednesday evenings during the year. Please look at all of the dates listed below and mark your calendars.
