In October 2019 the Catholic Church around the world observed an Extraordinary Month of Mission. Its aim, to encourage all members of our Catholic community to recognise themselves as missionary disciples, working and praying together to share God’s love with everyone, everywhere.
There four main aims of the Extraordinary Month of Mission:
- To encourage a deeper relationship with Jesus through prayer.
- To be inspired by the actions of our saints, martyrs and living missionaries.
- To increase understanding of mission.
- To increase support of overseas mission.
To support schools as they journeyed through the month of mission, we created 10 minute assembly reflections, a classroom workshop, and Faith in Action Sessions. All available to download below.
EMM was intended to be a springboard; the beginnings of a revival of mission. Schools and parishes are encouraged to hold their own mission month each year. Traditionally, October has been the month of mission within the Church, but the resources below can be used at any point in the year.
