What Is 'Meet A Missionary'?
'Meet a Missionary' is all about giving young people an interactive encounter with Catholic Missionaries who are living out the gospel in countries all over the world. Young people get a unique opportunity to hear first-hand about the highs and lows of missionaries’ experiences - experiences which often cross cultural boundaries, span monumental historical and political shifts and plant them firmly outside of their comfort zone.
Missionaries often work thousands of miles away. Technology now makes it possible to bring their stories to life into the heart of classrooms and parishes in the UK.
Benefits of 'Meet A Missionary'
'Meeting a Missionary' helps give young people time and space to think about what mission means to them in their own lives. It challenges them to foster a ‘missionary attitude’ and enrich their understanding of what ‘faith in action’ looks like around the world.
Young people can encounter the global catholic community through a human face, with real personal testimony.
How it works
The ‘Meet a Missionary’ project offers young people in the UK an opportunity to interview a Catholic missionary via Skype or in person.
