Our Mission

Welcome to this website dedicated to the work of the Formation for Mission Team in Portsmouth Diocese.


Formation for Mission aims to awaken the desire for a personal-passionate love for Jesus Christ within the communion of his Body the Church and thus to encourage and enable active missionary-discipleship.

It seeks to establish and develop a network of catechists across the Diocese and to look after their on-going formation. Formation for Mission looks to the catechesis of children and young adults, including sacramental preparation (baptism, confirmation, first holy communion), and adult formation, including the RCIA process and higher education programmes.


"That we enable many more to hear the Gospel and to come to know, serve and love Jesus Christ in the saving communion of His Catholic Church, so that, persevering in faith, hope and charity, they may one day reach the happiness of Heaven.
