WHAT IS A PARISH MISSION?
A mission is a mini retreat designed for busy people; an opportunity to step back a bit, to slow down and simply reconnect our lives with God; a time of spiritual refreshment and invigoration. Something we all need!
WHO IS A MISSION FOR?
The mission is for everyone. It surprises a lot of people how much younger people really enjoy missions. The mission experience is one of story, laughter, reflection, and prayer. It is designed to draw us into a deeper relationship with Jesus-- and have a good time doing it. It is an excellent opportunity for anyone struggling with or questioning their faith. For anyone who desires a spiritual boost or spark- that’s just what a parish mission is all about!
HOW LONG IS IT?
Here’s the best part- it’s 50 minutes. We recognize that people are busy and so it won’t go on and on every evening. That is a promise. By the time you leave home for the mission every evening to the time you get back- it will be under an hour. A time frame that accommodates even the busiest of schedules.
People who become inactive in the Church state that it was the invitation of someone they knew and respected that greatly influenced them to become active again. We encourage you to give a small gift to your family and friends by simply inviting them to come with you to the mission. If they decline, accept “no” graciously and don't take it personally. A “no thanks” won’t negatively impact your life, but a “yes” could change someone’s life forever. So press through any fears of rejection and keep inviting! You’ll never get a “yes” if you never ask.
