Prayer and Action Mission

High School

Prayer and Action is a summer program that offers high school students a mission experience in their own diocese. This low-cost mission trip experience offers students an opportunity to dive deeper into their relationship with Christ while serving people in their own community and growing deeper in faith with peers from around the Diocese of Savannah and beyond. 

The program was named after a quote about Mary from Pope Saint John Paul II that emphasized Mary’s dedication to both prayer and action.

Prayer and Action is open to all high school students, including those entering 9th grade in the Fall and to any current seniors who will be graduating in the Spring. If bringing a parish group, we require one adult chaperone (21 years or older) for every seven youth. If you bring both boys and girls, you must bring both male and female chaperones. Adult chaperones must be Safe Environment Compliant in their own diocese and be Diocesan-approved.
