Fostering Community and Mission
Paradigm Missions is a Catholic missionary apostolate serving the young church of San Diego through college outreach within the context of the local community.
College ministry is vital to the lifelong faithfulness of our youth and in turn our city of San Diego. These students, transformed into missionary disciples, will go into every precipice of society, having the ability to powerfully affect our parishes, diocese and city. Paradigm Missions believes strongly that a holistic approach to this college ministry, done in the context of the local community, is vital for the long term fruits of mission. Founded on the pillars of missional, communal and local, Paradigm Missions desires to build bridges and foster organic community among college students, missionaries and all ages and states of life through social and ministry opportunities. Community is the fertile soil for the missional seed to grow. Even more powerful than an individual on mission is a community on mission.

As Pope Paul VI reminds us, “evangelizing is in fact the grace and vocation proper to the Church, her deepest identity. She exists in order to evangelize”. Thus, we do not pretend that this work is ours, and ours alone. We know that we participate in the work of the Church, and thus participate in this work with you. We ask that you consider supporting the mission the Lord has placed upon the hearts of all of us at Paradigm Missions. We ask that you consider supporting in three main ways.
First, we ask that you consider praying for the work of Paradigm Missions. We ask that you bring these intentions to our Lord and offer them up within your prayers and Sacramental participation daily. We know that everything we do is only possible with grace, and that all of it must overflow from the depths of our interior life with the Lord.
Second, this would not be very fun or fruitful if we did it alone. We hope that you would consider reaching out and finding ways, big or small, to participate within our missional community. We truly desire to share life with you, and to share the beauty that it is to be church to each other. Please consider joining our contact list by reaching out below.
Lastly, we ask that you consider entering the mission field with us even further by supporting Paradigm Missions or our missionaries with your financial support. We are completely supported by the generous donations of our mission partners. We know that not everyone is called to mission in the same manner. As Saint Mother Teresa said, “Some give by going, and others go by giving”. Your consideration of supporting us by giving, so that we can “go” really means a lot and we look forward to entering into this mission with you. If you desire to become a mission partner and donate to our cause, please follow the “Donate” link below this or at the top of the page.
