Our approach

Our approach

​Before mission

The school is prepared for mission through school visits and telephone calls and we aim to prepare a group of pupils who will be able to assist with the running of the mission during the mission week itself.

The Mission Week

During the week of mission the message is presented through daily assemblies and via workshops and other activities.

Prayer is a fundamental part of the mission experience and this can include ‘Lightfever’ adoration times, ‘Prayer 4U’ personal prayer experiences, sacramental confession and either a final mission Mass or Liturgy of the Word. The team can also offer an introductory session to ‘Youth Alpha’ which the school can continue to run after the mission week is over.

Our activities are lively and a mission week includes a lot of fun as well as times of deep reflection on the Christian message, all facilitated through drama, music and song, personal testimony and prayer.

After mission

After the mission is over, schools are encouraged to keep in touch and students are welcome to join us for our in-house youth events such as the D-Weekends and D-Fuse.

We can also offer retreat days to schools who have had a mission with us, as a way of helping to keep the flame alive.
