The main purpose of the Discipleship Core Value Committee is to increase the knowledge and love of the Catholic Church and develop a closer relationship with Jesus Christ while providing opportunities to build community.
1) One way to accomplish this is to make more people aware of the resources and opportunities to learn and grow in their Catholic faith. The committee is working to promote on-line resources such as Formed (svcape.formed.org) and Dynamic Catholic (dynamiccatholic.com).
2) In addition, the committee has organized the formation of small faith sharing groups. They started in October 2018. The plan is to have 6 to 8-week sessions each Fall and Spring. Small Faith Sharing groups are 8-10 people who meet regularly – usually once per week. Their purpose is to foster fellowship while learning and growing in our Catholic faith.
The committee’s vision for our Parish is to be an engaged, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic Parish creating disciples of Christ and His Church.
