Over the past five years the ICPE Mission has been entrusted with the Campus Ministry of Regis High School in which time they developed a dynamic Retreat program for all class levels culminating in the junior "Encounter Retreat". Along side this we organize and animate all the liturgies throughout the year, including a weekly all school Mass and bi yearly all school Reconciliation Services.
A highlight of the Campus Ministry is the music ministry group made up of current students and staff and directed by the Campus Minister they provide musical accompaniment for all school liturgies and other wider community events.
Patricia Dol is currecmtly serving as Campus Minister and loves serving Regis High School in this important mission.
Over the past 12 month, we have engaged in working alongside the staff at the Fr. Bernard Youth Center in Mt. Angel. This has been a great opportunity to co-work with a vibrant local Catholic youth ministry. Presently Mark is serving at the youth center as operations manager and we are preparing to run a 3 month School for Missionary Disciples at the youth center during the summer of 2017. This is an exciting time for us as an ICPE Mission as we search out new opportunities to serve the Church here in Western Oregon.
School of Missionary Disciples
The ICPE School for Missionary Disciples is a three-month fully residential course that aims to form and train young Catholics to be effective evangelisers. You will learn to share the love of God through the witness of your life and through the explicit proclamation of the Gospel.
10 weeks of rich and inspiring Catholic teachings are followed by 2 weeks of hands-on missionary experience.
The schedule of the School includes time for Adoration, Ecuharist, personal and communal prayer, lectures, practical work, small groups, fun and fellowship.
Living in a community setting 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.
During the outreach phase, you will have the opportunity to experience hands-on missionary work... from visiting people in their homes, to street outreach, schools, colleges, parish seminars, youth gathering and more.
The School for Missionary Disciples offers the missionary lifestyle as a valid option for today's Catholic youth.
Next School here in Oregon, begins June 2017. Click here for more information or to register
