Evangelization

Mission Statement

The Evangelization Task force and Leadership Team encourages and inspires parishioners and all who look to our parish as a beacon of faith, to live the Gospel, responding to and fulfilling Christ’s great commission: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations.” We seek to support the Pastor, Pastoral Staff, the Pastoral Council, Pastoral Council Commissions and Ministry Teams in the onging work of discipleship.

Living Our Discipleship – Evangelizing Through Our Actions

How do we live our Discipleship and Evangelize, Sharing the Joy of the Gospel through our actions? There are many possibilities for prayer and worship, religious education, spiritual formation, outreach, community building, and stewardship that take place in our parish community.

The Marks of Discipleship

In the fall of 2005, the Cathedral Pastoral Council and Pastoral Staff began exploring ways to encourage everyone in our parish to reflect upon and respond to the Lord’s call to discipleship in our lives. After much discussion and careful planning, “Project Discipleship” was begun to re-energize our faith community into one of hospitality and commitment, becoming the hands, the heart, and the feet of Christ; demonstrated through our love and compassion for our sisters and brothers in Christ. Five spiritual practices were highlighted as part of Project Discipleship and have become known as the “Marks of Discipleship.” More information is available in this document.
