What is a CREDO “IN HIM” Parish Mission?
A CREDO “IN HIM” Parish Mission offers the opportunity for your parish to set aside a week for the renewal and deepening of faith by encountering and responding to Jesus Christ through the Mission events. CREDO will also aid your parish in beginning a process of deepening its missionary focus.
Informed by principles of the New Evangelisation, a CREDO Parish Mission offers a structured programme of kerygmatic talks with liturgical and Sacramental opportunities for response. CREDO’s Parish Mission focuses on giving participants opportunities to encounter Jesus personally and provides many supported opportunities for people to experience a deeper prayer life in him.


What makes CREDO Parish Missions unique?
Considering the postmodern and secular nature of today’s society, it is also important for CREDO Parish Missions to go beyond the church doors and incorporate activities that engage with the local community. In doing so, a strong witness to the presence and life of the Parish is provided and an opportunity and context for sharing about faith and inviting others to attend the mission is created. Such activities include school visits, a coffee stall for parents at school pick up time, letterbox drops, door-to-door visitations, street processions and shopping centre outreach.


A CREDO Parish Mission also includes the training of parishioners to participate in its missionary activities. Training sessions are offered prior to the Mission event to provide parishioners with tools for evangelisation. These include: tips on how to share faith stories, be an attentive listener and handle difficult questions which may arise. Thus, a CREDO parish mission gives parishioners training and experience in evangelisation; providing an active legacy for future missionary works of the parish.

What happens after the Parish Mission?
CREDO is committed to continuing follow up after the Mission to support ongoing spiritual growth, faith formation and outreach initiatives. CREDO offers a six-week program called “More Than Sunday” which is designed to introduce participants to a life of missionary discipleship. Find out more here.
