ESMs in Transition in the Spirit of Pentecost

Dear friends! For 35 years, ESMs helped empower young men and women so that they, rooted in Christ, could become missionary actors in our society. It’s incredible …

ESM or Emmanuel School of Mission is a nine-month program to empower youth through intellectual, spiritual, human and missionary training.

There are 7 ESMs located in 5 different continents. This school  of life is run by the Emmanuel Community. ESMs are open young Catholics aged 18 and 30 years old, who are committed to spreading the Gospel in their country and ready to give the best of themselves to become builders of a civilization of love.

The purpose of the ESM is to train a new generation to take up the missionary challenges of the modern world. Each school has their specificities but all have 5 common commitments.

    1. Be with Christ
    2. Get to know Christ
    3. Be with others 
    4.  Announce Christ
    5. Imitate Christ

A bit of history:

The first school was establishes in September 1984, initially at Wissous near Paris (France), later moving to Paray-le-Monial (in Burgundy, France). Subsequently, 3 further schools were formed. All four were later to take the name of Emmanuel School of Mission. A few years later, seeing the need of the local young adults to be closer to their culture and for others to open wide the gates of their hearts and minds, other schools were born.

…the Gospel tells us, we can say that Jesus, in the years of his youth, was “training”, being prepared to carry out the Father’s plan. His adolescence and his youth set him on the path to that sublime mission
