Serving Our Community For 10+ Years!
THE FUTURE YOUTH OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH ARE HERE!
Soldiers Of Mercy
Is a Catholic Youth Ministry that caters to the development of youth through a series of Workshops, Retreats, Follow-up's, Community event and Mercy Works. Our main purpose is to form the youth through our Leadership Development Program (L.D.P) and empower them to
enrich lives of the youth around them.
We have tutoring programs, conferences, retreats, workshops, mercy works, follow-ups and ministries to be able to form, develop, and improve the lives of our youth and set them up for a successful life.
Who Is Soldiers Of Mercy?
After many years of experience with the youth, Sebastian Zapata and Arlene Milagros Carratala were inspired by the Holy Spirit to form Soldiers of Mercy Catholic Youth Ministry. Soldiers Of Mercy Inc. was founded in January of 2009 with the launching of our unique New Life New Beginning Catholic Youth Retreat. The focus and charisma of our youth ministry is to help educate the youth against the errors and confusions of the world by providing them with an effective support system in which they will learn their faith and discover their God-given purpose or vocation. The spiritual aspect of our Leadership Development Program is based on the principle teachings of the Catholic Faith. The youth who join our program learn to love God and the Church profoundly through living out an active sacramental and ministerial life. The practical aspect of our program equips them with basic tools of time management, proper study skills, healthy living, human relations and communication, talent development, public speaking skills and many other abilities needed to organize and excel in every aspect of life including home, school, work and ministry that they may be successful in their careers and family life.
Our mission is to spread Christ’s love through the Catholic Church globally by forming leaders that will travel around the world founding Soldiers of Mercy Inc. communities as a service to Catholic parishes globally. Our charisma is to teach the youth to know and love God and Neighbor through a life of service closely united to their Catholic parish community. We spread that love through various works of mercy including: teaching the children, visiting the elderly and sick, promoting chastity and extending the pro-life movement.
Our Ministry Prayer
Immaculate Heart of Mary, I give you my heart, my soul and my will. Teach me to be in all things a faithful and courageous Soldier of Mercy. Help me to prepare, form and live my life in such a way that brings honor and glory to our Lord Jesus Christ. Unite all my thoughts, words and actions to yours, Heavenly Mother, so that together we may repair the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus by fulfilling perfectly God's holy will. Impress on my heart that true leadership is constant and humble service in your heavenly Army. May we battle against hatred, injustice and religious indifference by spreading God's love and mercy to children, the sick and elderly, the unborn and all those who need your love. Keep all the Soldiers Of Mercy sealed with the Precious Blood of Jesus and enfolded in your Mantle of Love. Form in us a true devotion to the Holy Rosary and a profound love for our Eucharist Lord so we may extend the Kingdom of God to the ends of the Earth. Lead us toward our purpose as we march onward to fulfill our Lord's request to his apostles: "Go and make disciples of all nations." Amen.
