Sion Community Resources
for Parishes in Mission
Sion Community partners Catholic communities who wish to become “Parishes in Mission”. Mission “events” will not be an isolated experience in the life of a parish, but a launch pad (or affirmation) for the parish’s mission to continually invite all its members to become followers of Jesus Christ and understand how he is at the heart of our beliefs and practices as Catholics.
For today’s busy Catholics who are not easily able to attend a whole week of events, Sion offers two new mission formats:
“Celebration Week” - compresses parish visiting and three evening events into a single week.
“Festival Weekend” - has a slightly larger Sion Community Team running a weekend of events in a parish.
Encouragement is given to parishioners to begin offering a basic Gospel course such as Alpha or Discovering Christ on a recurring basis, and where a parish lacks the resources to train its parishioners to do this in-house, Sion Community can also provide the training.
