CRS Parish Ambassador Corps
What is the CRS Parish Ambassador Corps?
The CRS Parish Ambassador Corps is a nationwide community of Catholics who are passionate about global solidarity. Recognizing the Gospel call to be missionary disciples, Parish Ambassadors help their fellow parishioners put their faith into action by responding to the needs of our global family.
Parish Ambassadors are formed in the spiritual roots of our call to care for our brothers and sisters in need around the world, and learn about global issues that impact those living in poverty. They participate in two annual diocesan retreats, growing in faith and leadership and connecting with the Ambassador community. They also have access to CRS trainings, speakers and other faith formation opportunities.
What Do CRS Parish Ambassadors Do?
Ambassadors educate and mobilize their parish communities when a global emergency occurs, and they provide leadership for CRS Rice Bowl and two other CRS global solidarity initiatives a year. CRS offers a variety of programs and resources from which Ambassadors can choose to engage their parish.
