Cross-Cultural Campus Outreach

Did you know there are 

250,000 Chinese international students on US campuses…

     …but virtually no outreach by Catholic faith communities?

In 2014, St. Francis Xavier Lay Missionary Society began an initiative to provide materials and training to Catholic campus ministry programs to do culturally-sensitive faith-based outreach to Chinese international students.  This program, while focused on the Chinese-speaking population - which makes up 40% of international students - can also apply well to international students from other ethnic backgrounds.

Participating programs will receive Chinese language campus outreach kits to assist in sharing our Catholic Christian faith with international students.  Some of these materials include:
  • bilingual Mass sheet
  • bilingual New Testament
  • bilingual book of inspiring words of faith from Mother Teresa
  • Chinese pamphlet introducing the Catholic faith used throughout China
  • Chinese prayer cards on the Apostles Creed, the rosary and St. Francis' prayer for peace

Thank you and God bless!
