Jesus Christ is calling each of us to invite others to a true encounter and lifelong relationship with Him as His disciples in His Church. This call flows from our Baptism and Confirmation. Our evangelization efforts will require us to identify new, outward-reaching ways to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to the world given significant societal shifts over the past decades.
Who are the disciples and missionary disciples in our parishes? How do we define or identify them? The Office of Evangelization and Missionary Discipleship has developed a helpful reference tool: How to Identify A Disciple and Missionary Disciple in Our Midst
We must ensure that our parishes, church structures, and schools have adequate resources to foster their vitality. That means sufficient finances and physical facilities, as well as capable leadership. Our renewal efforts must focus on new ways to create vibrant parish life, which would foster the seven signs of parish vitality.
The Holy Spirit is urging all of us to to be witnesses to the mercy of God and our redemption in Jesus Christ. We must come together in solidarity and bring the light and hope of Christ to a world in need in the way we reach out to those on the margins in our own families and in our local communities
