"Be concerned in a spiritual way for the education of young people. Where minds and hearts are shaped in love for the Lord and his Church, in the good, the true and the beautiful.” Pope Francis
Our secondary school resources follow the Liturgical Year and encourage students to reflect on what it means to belong to The People of God and their part in building the Kingdom of God so that all people around the world might ‘have life and have it to the full.’ (John 10:10)
Our resources help young people to:
- Discover the world around them and reflect on their role within it
- Think critically, inspired by Gospel values
- Embrace Catholic Social Teaching
- Grow in faith
Missio's assemblies encourage young people to reflect on what it means to belong to the People of God and be missionaries of God’s love with those close to home and far away; witnessing to Missio Education’s aim: to support home as well as overseas mission.
‘I enjoyed the “building the kingdom” activity and learnt that we are here to be messengers of God, to deliver his love to the people around us no matter who they are.’ Daniel, Year 8.
Our workshops and mission events with key stages 3, 4, and 5, incorporate Missio’s message with liturgical seasons, Church teaching, and themes pertinent to a school's needs. In all our resources we aim to meet, as far as we are able, curriculum and inspection requirements.
‘Students explored a variety of topics whilst retaining the constant theme of mission. Excellent day and very well facilitated by Missio.’ Head of Sixth Form
In addition to classroom and year group based workshops and mission events, Missio Education can also facilitate staff retreats and INSET, exploring mission and catholic education in a changed and changing cultural landscape.
To arrange a workshop or INSET in your school or college, please contact Claire@missio.org.uk
Missio's secondary assemblies are available to download at the bottom of this page as is our Education flyer. Our assemblies are free but if you are able to make a donation to cover costs and support Missio projects across the world, like the one illustrated below, your help would make a big difference.
