What is SSME?

SSME - Summer School of M!sionary Evan"l!m
Who is SSME for? Where and When? This summer’s SSME program will take place from Monday June 13th to Friday July 8th. Arriving in Saint Lucia on the 13th, missionaries will live at our missionary center, the Corpus Christi Convent, in Castries, Saint Lucia. Each week of the program will incorporate both service in ministry and study in classes. The final week of the SSME program will be a week of application. The missionaries will spend that week of their program in a more intense schedule of evangelization and service. Participants will be living what they’ve learned and been exposed to before returning home to the States. Our SSME program is designed for those who are looking for more. Many young men and women are looking for more than a one-week mission, but do not feel ready or able to commit years to Christ’s mission. If this describes you, consider spending a month with us this summer, growing in servant leadership, the ability to evangelize, learning how to apply a missionary experience and way of life to your everyday life here in the States and to the ends of the earth, spending time in daily prayer and in direct service to the poor. Come join us in ministry to the elderly, working in a day care and pre-school, feeding the poor, working with at-risk youth, speaking in schools, street evangelism, teaching a children’s Bible camp, service projects; in changing the world! In Saint Lucia, each missionary should expect to learn, to serve and to grow. You will learn about evangelism, the Church, about what it means to be a missionary, and how to live as one. You will serve the people of Saint Lucia, the staff, your fellow missionaries, and above all, your Lord Jesus Christ! You will grow close to Christ and to His body the Church, by coming to know, love and serve Him.

SSME is an apostolate of Family Missions Company. SSME focuses on evangelization; the sharing of the Gospel through witness, testimony and preaching. Family Missions Company is based out of Abbeville, Louisiana. FMC is a lay Catholic organization which seeks to fulfill the Great Commission given by Christ to His disciples. FMC trains and sends out lay missionaries to the ends of the earth. SSME’s immersion program hopes to stir up missionary zeal and equip Catholic missionaries in four weeks of study and mission service. SSME will expose participants to the life of Catholic foreign and domestic missionary evangelism.
