Established in 2010, MYMission is the Diocesan Youth Mission Team and Youth Service for the Diocese of Middlesbrough. The Diocese of Middlesbrough stretches from the south bank of the River Tees to the north bank of the River Humber, incorporating the Boroughs of Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland, Stockton on Tees (south of the Tees), cities of Kingstown upon Hull and York, East Yorkshire and most of North Yorkshire. MYMission was launched to promote the growth of peer ministry among our young people; we try to spread the Gospel message in a way that speaks to young people.
The young should be the first apostles of the young, in direct contact with them, exercising the apostolate by themselves, among themselves, taking account of their social environment’. (Decree on the Apostolate of the Laity, 12)
We are a small team who endeavour to ensure the needs of young people and those who minister to them are met. We bring together the local, diocesan, national and international strands of youth ministry for the benefit of all. We organise school and parish retreats and missions and youth events such as the Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes & World Youth Day and CYMFed Flame Congress. We are involved in the school chaplaincy of our eight diocesan secondary schools and our 46 primary schools.
