The Mission Possible XI serves as the culminating activity of the youth in our diocese for the “Year of Parish as Communion of Communities” with the following objectives:

  • Start in the young the habit of praying from the heart, as Mama Mary In this way, we will also build Christ-centered (spiritual) youth leaders.
  • Provide the respite that can only be found in uniting with God through prayer.
  • Inspire the young to imitate the beloved disciple and take Mary into their hearts, their homes, their lives, into their parish.

In line with this, we would like to request you to send five (5) youth leaders from your parish, ages 16-39 to participate in the said event.  It is advised that you send at least one officer from the parish COY, and the remaining slots allotted for youth leaders from different ministries i.e. Youth Choir, Ministry of Altar Servers, MLCP Youth, Youth Catechists or those involved in the Biblical Apostolate. These leaders, though small in number, are expected to be responsible for implementing and cascading the follow-up formation program of the MP11 to the rest of the parish youth.
