How can we transmit a living, personal Catholic faith to future generations?
By coming to know Jesus Christ, and following him as his disciples.
Please join us for our Parish Mission:
Forming Intentional Disciples by Sherry Weddell
February 10th 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
The Church of the Blessed Sacrament, New Gym
There are immense challenges facing the Church today. Come walk with the presenter, Sherry Weddell, as we go through the steps that will help Catholics make the conscious choice to follow Jesus as his disciples, transforming parish life and ultimately the life of the whole Church. (https://siena.org/fid-formation-days)
Drawing upon Sherry Weddell’s best-selling book, Forming Intentional Disciples, she will share what we have learned about evangelization and making disciples.
We will learn:
how our larger culture affects evangelization;
how to recognize the stages of another’s spiritual journey;
how to have spiritual conversations with people of all religious backgrounds or none;
the first hopeful signs of change in a parish; and
the practical first steps parish leaders take when setting out to make their communities a center of discipleship.
Please help us advance our Parish Priority Plan!
