Summer staff is our three month pre-formative intermediate community for college students and graduates who are tired of the same old verbiage of our secular collegiate ethos. This includes the hyper-active lifestyle of doing a bunch of things not even knowing why we are doing them. Summer staff begins on May 24 and ends on August 15. You will join young adults from around the country to live in Catholic Christian community for three months in beautiful Door County, WI at Saint Joseph Formation Center. You will have a daily schedule of prayer, apostolate work, and community life doing it ALL for God. You will be asked to give of yourself in a radical commitment to Christ and His Church, as a contemplative in action. (“Unless a missionary is a contemplative, he cannot proclaim Christ in a credible way” JPII RM).
Your summer includes formation in a submersion of HOLY SCRIPTURES, contemporary Catholic authors such as Cantalamessa, Jacque Phillip, Jean Vanier, Father Barron, Johannas Metz, Fr. Simeon, Fr. Gallagher and many more writings including Redemptoris Missio, room & board, a five-day silent directed retreat, Catholicfest, & an Extreme Expedition Experience. All led by a certified Catholic priest with a Masters in Divinity and a CDL (commercial drivers license) and some fired up Sisters in Christ called The Missionaries of the Word. You will be a missionary, helping us staff CYE Base Camp Coffee House in an urban setting, discipling ten expedition retreats and the family FUN of Catholicfest, our annual family event. If you're interested, simply click on the online application link below, and prayerfully fill out the application. This is not a paid position, but a voluntary 3 months of service. Knowing that you have temporal responsibilities to fulfill, you may fundraise to help fulfill those responsibilities. We prefer that you have been an expeditioner first so we recommend coming on an expedition retreat if you are serious about the matter. DEADLINE for application is March 25. (Please email us if you are interested and it is past March 25).
This summer for the extreme expedition we are heading to Canada to the Casque Isels Trail! A week of backpacking on the beautiful and rugged northern shore of Lake Superior! Pack your passport, we’re heading north!
