Sion Community for Evangelism

Logo for the Sion Catholic Community for Evangelism






The Sion Community’s mission is to proclaim the Good News and equip others for the work of evangelisation, using the charismatic gifts. The community is well-known in this country, especially for its Parish Missions, and for School Missions, run by a team known as Cross Purposes. Training and formation are a speciality of the Community, especially in the practical aspects of evangelisation through sharing faith with others.

There is a particular focus on youth in the Community, and a dedicated Youth Discipleship Team runs a variety of activities, including a course in apologetics, a mentoring programme, regional prayer groups (Oases), weekends away for youth, a summer camp, a gap year youth programme, and a three month discipleship training school.

Members of the Sion Community can be full-time or part-time, and make commitments ranging from short to long term; there 117 are also one or two priest and seminarian members. A branch of the Community is beginning in Ireland under the leadership of the Community’s founder, Fr Pat Lynch.
