Emmanuel Mission Rome
Nine months of mission and formation for young adults
BECOME A TRUE MISSIONARY THROUGHOUT THE WORLD
Living at the heart of the Church, the Emmanuel Community offers a year of mission and formation for young adults (19 to 30 years old) who wish to live in an international fraternity to become missionary disciples in their daily lives.
"Let the grace of your baptism bear fruit in a path of holiness. Let everything be open to God; turn to him in every situation. Do not be dismayed, for the power of the Holy Spirit enables you to do this, and holiness, in the end, is the fruit of the Holy Spirit in your life."
Pope Francis, Gaudete et Exultate 15

AT TRINITÀ DEI MONTI
WHAT IS A MISSIONARY DISCIPLE
THE DAY OF A MISSIONARY DISCIPLE AT TRINITÀ DEI MONTI
Everything we do during these nine months in Rome is based on one of our four guiding principles:
Day after day, we try to grow in personal and community prayer. We discover the deep dynamism of the liturgy and the power of the sacraments, we put daily Mass and adoration at the heart of our lives, integrate silence into our prayer life and learn to accept God’s mercy thus ourselves.
We gain important pastoral experience through missionary activities in the Sacred Heart Institute of Trinità dei Monti (600 pupils from kindergarten to high school), in the church (more than a million tourists visit our church and the convent every year) as well as in the guest house (which welcomes hundreds of pilgrims every year). We are also present among the poorest and most neglected people. This mission of compassion is particularly important. We also learn how to evangelize in an international and multicultural context in Italian, English and French.
During the year we study the Bible, art history, theology, apologetics, evangelisation, antropology and much more. We are not an academic school, but we believe that a true missionary disciple must learn in order to be able to spread God’s Word.
By choosing Emmanuel Mission Rome, we embrace a full-time residential community life. During this year of living together, we meet other young people from different cultures and backgrounds. Our community life is an effort to grow in charity and humility. We experience the joys and challenges of living with others and develop lasting friendships.
The team in charge
Responsible for the year
I am married to Mathilde and am a member of the Emmanuel Community. We have been in Rome since 2019 and I lead “Emmanuel Mission Rome” of Trinità dei Monti which succeeded the Emmanuel School of Mission in September 2020.
I was fortunate enough to be at the Emmanuel School of Mission last year, following which I decided to continue my mission with the Emmanuel Community. I accompany the young people in their formation and in their fraternal life.
