The Xavier School of Mission aims to equip and form leaders in evangelisation at the service of the Dioceses of Queensland and beyond. It is a dynamic and flexible resource that places the Church’s mission to evangelise at the heart of Holy Spirit Seminary’s formative process.
It emerges from Holy Spirit Provincial Seminary’s commitment to a vision of the Church as a community of faith of all the baptised faithful (cf. Lumen Gentium 9), and seeks to form priests who are enabled for a rich collaborative ecclesial leadership and ministry. To that end, each year it opens its doors to leaders across the five dioceses of Queensland and beyond for the
Xavier School of Mission.
The 2022 theme is the Theology of Mission: All in? When Mission is our Lens. Francis dreams of a “’missionary option’, that is, a missionary impulse capable of transforming everything, so that the Church’s customs, ways of doing things, times and schedules, language and structures can be suitably channelled for the evangelisation of today’s world” (Evangelii Gaudium 27).
These and other questions will frame the experience of our week together as we seek to respond to the Spirit’s call for a new generation of apostles.
