Register for 2006 Holy Week Megamissions

Youth for the Third Millennium (YTM) and Missionary Families for the Third Millennium (MFTM) are back for the third annual HOLY WEEK MEGAMISSION ´06. This year’s mission cities include Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Washington DC area, Sacramento, Calgary, Alberta & Quebec City, Quebec. Online registration begins March 1st.   Please visit www.ytm.org for more details.

In 1996, YTM began sending missionaries to Mexico for the Annual Holy Week Megamission organized there by Juventud Misionera. Each year this event grew bigger and bigger and in 2003 over 150 YTM missionaries from the United States attended the Mexico Megamission. A natural result has been the expansion of the Holy Week Megamission to this country. In 2004 the first Megamissions USA were held in Atlanta & Sacramento. In 2005 two more host cities were added: the Washington DC and Chicago. With this year’s addition of Houston, Calgary and Quebec City, organizers are ready for their biggest and best missions ever.

The volunteer missionaries work in teams serving parishes. They go door to door in neighborhoods assigned by the local pastor; they ask people if they have have intentions for which they can pray and invite them to

the special Holy Week services at the parish. Missionaries often report dramatic encounters with people who have been away from the faith for a long time and have simply been waiting to be asked back. Families and individuals alike experience the spiritual growth that comes from sharing one’s faith with others. Parishes find an increase in attendance and participation in liturgies and other parish functions.

YTM helps to build young people of character anchored in their commitment to ethics, values, and faith. It provides a platform for young Catholics to put their faith into action, advancing the culture of life through works of mercy and visiting souls in need. Since its founding in 1995, 6000 youth have visited more than 170,000 homes in over 600 parishes in 23 states and 4 countries. It has also had a hand in fostering at least 50 vocations to the priesthood and religious life. Increasing request for missions has demanded that YTM begin a program dedicated specifically to organizing local humanitarian and evangelization missions.

YTM and MFTM are programs of the Regnum Christi Movement: Love Christ, serve people, build the Church.
