Vocation Promotion & Youth Ministry



Vocation animation and youth Ministry are part and parcel of our evangelizing presence in any given place as Comboni Missionaries. These are the main objectives in Vocation/youth ministry:
a) To create an awareness of missionary nature among the young people at various levels: in schools, parishes, youth groups and in other learning institutions. This is done through school visitations, Seminars, workshops and in various Liturgies (e.g. Youth Mass)
b) To present the Comboni Missionaries (the Founder, their work/charism and who they are) to the young people, as a family which some of them could identify with.
c) To provoke commitment among the youth who are in search of individual vocations.
d) To follow and to scrutinize young men who show interest in joining the Comboni Missionaries, by helping them discern their vocations
e) To provoke a pro-active faith participation of the youth in the mission of the Church today.

What is required to join the Comboni family to help you to take on a specific mission in the Church and in the world

  • To be a committed young Catholic person between 18 – 23 years of age
