“And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
- Matthew 28:18-20
Each of us is called to be engaged in the work of evangelization! It’s not only the job of the parish priest or parish staff, but rather of every parishioner to proclaim the good news to all that we meet.
We are called to be Missionary Disciples. The Archdiocese of St. Louis has defined Missionary Discipleship that we are all called to Encounter Jesus, Grow in our relationship with Him and Witness Him to others constantly.
As we enter into the All Things New Pastoral Strategic Planning Process, we are asking the Lord to renew our parishes and institutions with an Evangelizing Mission. To help prepare you for that mission, we have resources for you below to help equip you with New Hearts, New Minds and New Methods.
Start by equipping yourself for the mission that God is calling you to through by using the Preparing for Mission Guidebook. This guidebook consists of 13 sessions that can be used for individual reflection or for small group discussion with parish staff, volunteers or anyone who wants to become equipped for the mission to share the Good News.
