School of Mission
Be trained in having greater confidence to share the Gospel of Joy with others...
With others from around the world you can experience a time of tremendous grace, where you will be challenged to go beyond your comfort zone and to grow into a disciple of Christ in ways you never thought possible.
Give five months to God and see what He can do with your life!!!
This programme is international, Catholic and dynamic - a 20-week training course aiming to form and train young Catholics as effective evangelisers. Whether in the home, parish and workplace or in full-time missions, you will learn to share the love of God through the witness of your life and through the active proclamation of the Gospel.
The School has two phases.
which lasts 3 months, deals with topics such as: The Fatherhood of God, Jesus and the Cross, The Holy Spirit and the gifts, Building a Christian Character, The Church and Christian community, Worship, Discernment and Intercession, Evangelisation and much more.
Daily life includes the Eucharist, time for personal and communal prayer, lectures, practical work and recreational activities.
The Mission Phase is the second part of the programme - one month devoted to direct evangelisation and mercy work in schools, Churches, prisons and out on the streets. Participants learn to reach out to society through the performing arts and their personal witness, in response to Pope John Paul II's call for a "New Evangelisation". All schools are fully residential.

Michela Barter, Canada says:
The School of Mission was the most incredible faith experience of my life! I came to the school missing a sense of purpose and lacking a complete trust in God. Through every aspect of the school, I was led into a deeper awareness of God's faithfulness, and a deeper knowledge of myself.
