OCY Missionaries is a missionary program offered by the Office of Catholic Youth in the Archdiocese of Toronto. In 2022 a partnership was created by the OCY, the Archdiocese of Toronto and HopeStone Catholic Formation. A team of passionate people came together with the idea to unite previous missionaries known as RE:GEN and HopeStone, with the goal of pursuing Christ together and reaching more young people with the Gospel message.
