Called and Sent is a program that offers high school students the opportunity to be formed as the next generation of disciples in the Church. The program will provide an environment in which young people will be able to encounter Christ in a personal and powerful way. They will come to understand who Christ is, and in coming to know Him, they will come to better understand who they are in relationship to Him. This then leads to a greater awareness of how they are called to live their faith intentionally as disciples."

Having encountered Christ, themselves, and one another in the light of the truths of our Catholic faith, the young people will be better prepared to see that they each have an important role to play (vocation) in the mission entrusted by Jesus to the Church when He said to His disciples: “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19).
