The Faith & Mission Vicariate exists to help people deepen their faith and to discern their Mission, offering discernment programmes for this.
We take seriously the vision of Church from Pope Francis that we all need to formed in the ‘art of accompaniment’. We are here to walk alongside and journey with those who are seeking to get close to Christ and to live a faith-filled life.
The Church is filled with the baptised who have been chosen by God to serve. Many of our parishes are enriched by the ministry of these faithful people.
As a principle the Vicariate for Faith & Mission wants to support and enhance the ministry carried out locally.
One of the ways to develop local ministry is by networking those involved in certain fields. Here there is an opportunity to share good practice and resources. Through mutual listening there is also the opportunity to build up confidence and to design training and resources where people feel there are gaps.
