Story

SPIRITUS brings the Light of Christ to thousands of youth who have life-changing encounters with Him.

SPIRITUS missionaries see how deeply youth long for Jesus. Philip explains, “because many students have never encountered the Lord and His love before, there is a restlessness and a lack of joy that is present in their hearts. We try to help these students find the peace of Jesus.”

Through dynamic retreats that include witness talks, small group discussions, intercessory prayer, activities, and Sacraments, Catholic youth encounter the love of Christ in a profoundly meaningful way. SPIRITUS missionaries, guided by the Holy Spirit, facilitate these encounters, bringing the light of Christ to all those they encounter.

After retreat, students share comments like  "I really loved SPIRITUS, they made me feel welcomed and loved" and "I had lost faith and was forced to go on this retreat. I don’t feel lost anymore!"

Missionaries see firsthand how retreats affect students. Scott, a second-year missionary, said, “during intercessory prayer (when missionaries pray with each of the students), the students opened up and revealed the things that were on their hearts, sharing the pains and joys that were going on in their lives. In that moment, I visibly saw how they allowed God to take their suffering from their hearts and replace it with light and peace.

"“It is a true gift to share the love of God with each student I encounter on retreat. In sharing my own light of faith, God ignites their inner lights as well. It amazes me to watch the Holy Spirit brighten within them, and so I cannot help but marvel at His grace,” says Rosie, a first-year missionary.

These transformative encounters with Jesus are not possible without your support. When you partner with SPIRITUS, you are bringing the light of Christ to young Catholics and their communities.
