Mission Statement: To draw ourselves and those around us closer to Jesus by living a Sacramental life in accord with the teachings of the Catholic Church, and to be empowered by the grace of the Sacraments to witness and share God's love with others.
The Cross+Training Ministry started in 1998 with about 15 volunteers and has grown to what it is today. Through the support and prayers of our community, we have the honor of journeying alongside the confirmation students and meeting Christ within them.
The Cross+Trainers are a group of about 140+ volunteers whom simply desire to serve God. We are a diverse group of individuals ranging from recently confirmed to post graduate professional young adults. Our primary role is to plan and facilitate the six confirmation weekend retreats for our St. Paul the Apostle Confirmation program community. We also serve alongside the Youth Ministry program and our Catechetical Student Body with various events & activities. We have also had the blessing to have worked with other parishes within our diocese.
Our mission, both yours and ours, is to serve the Body of Christ. Please continue to pray for us as we continue to pray for you all.
We will see you in the Eucharist.
God calls us all to serve, it's all in a matter of how. If you are at all curious to see if this is where He calls, come meet with us.
Cross+Trainers meet every Thursday night from August until May 7:00 pm-9:00 pm in the Front of Maher Hall. If you're at all interested in joining us with Christ's mission, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
