May 30, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – There are just two days left to apply for the Immaculata Fellowship, the ten-month apprenticeship designed to build the next generation of leaders in the fight to restore Christian civilization. 

Immaculata Fellows will have the chance to learn the tools of leadership directly from some of the most effective pro-life, pro-family, and Catholic advocates alive today. You will connect with other youth who share your passion for the faith and the restoration of culture. 

The program opens in August with a week of prayer, training, and networking in Rome, and closes in May 2020 with Canada’s National March for Life in Ottawa and a special conference organized for the fellows. 

In the bosom of the Eternal City, the fellows will get to attend Mass with Cardinal Raymond Burke and take part in a closed-door Q&A with him at our annual Rome Youth Conference! 

LifeSite co-founder and editor-in-chief John-Henry Westen will be hosting a webinar Friday, May 31 at 3:00 p.m. EST to give more details on the fellowship and answer any questions you may have. Click here to register for the webinar. 

Continue reading below to learn how you can take part in this unique opportunity. 

What to Expect: 

During the Fellowship year, Immaculata Fellows will… 

  • Participate in monthly webcasts with top-level leaders; 

  • Study various books and publications and discuss them with the other fellows in a dedicated social networking group; 

  • Assist LifeSite in its media-focused mission by taking on a unique project in journalism, videography/photography, development, marketing, or research/data entry; 

  • And conduct monthly calls with a LifeSite staff mentor who will provide guidance in pursuing their calling, and assistance in completing their fellowship project. 

All Immaculata Fellows are expected to: 

  • Commit to starting or joining a local group or apostolate (Catholic, pro-life or pro-family) in order to encourage peers to activism; 

  • Obtain a priest as a spiritual director (we may be able to help find one if needed); 

  • And maintain a regular life of prayer and participation in the Sacraments (daily Mass and Rosary are highly encouraged). 

  • As fundraising is an integral part of apostolic work, fellows who are selected will be given some training in this area as well, and asked to help fundraise to cover the cost of flights, housing, meals, and materials. Fellows must also agree to have their photos and testimonials used in promotional materials. 

  • Besides the two trips in Fall 2019 and May 2020, fellows should expect to devote a few hours every week to the program.


Candidates must: 

  • Be between the ages of 19 and 29; 

  • Be a practicing Catholic; 

  • Be able to devote at least a few hours to the fellowship every week; 

  • Commit to attending the kick-off event in Rome, and the send-off event in Ottawa; 

  • And be interested in pursuing a mission-driven career impacting life, family, faith and culture.
