The DFP is a year for young people to live in community, to study the Catholic faith with the head and the heart, to develop their personal relationship with Jesus Christ, to forge wholesome lifelong friendships, and to grow in their missionary zeal through practical service and ministry.

Info Sessions

If you missed our live information sessions, here is a recorded version for you to watch at your convenience (about 30 minutes). Bear in mind the plan has evolved since this was recorded. The content on the rest of our page is up to date.

When is it?

It starts with a committal Mass in St. Malo on Sep 11, 2022 and ends with closing ceremonies and Mass on Apr 29, 2023.

There is a three week Christmas break starting Dec 17 and ending Jan 8.

Who is it for?

This is primarily for single Catholic young adults who have completed high school and have yet to make big decisions towards school, work, or vocation (marriage, priesthood, or consecrated life).


This is secondarily for older single Catholic adults who have started on life’s journey but want a chance to pause and reorient themselves.

Other single Christians and people of non-Christian belief are welcome, but they must accept that the instruction received and community life lived will be Catholic in character.


What happens during the year?

​You will receive instruction in courses covering:

  • Development of a personal prayer life

  • Sacred Scripture

  • The Catechism of the Catholic Church

  • Liturgy

  • Church teaching on Human Sexuality

  • Essentials of Evangelization

  • Many other topics on how to be an authentic Catholic missionary disciple


See our Course Outline for full details.


You will put the virtues into practice by participating in intentional activities such as:

  • Frequent reception of the Sacraments

  • Ascetic disciplines

  • Regular community prayer

  • Community meals

  • Household chores

  • Group activities (games, fitness, reading, et c.)

  • Outreach projects
