Pastor's Message

Do you want to be a disciple of Jesus? Well if so then, we need to know what or who a disciple is and how we can become one. The readings speak to us about those who desire to be disciples of Jesus and also about who a disciple is. In the Acts of the Apostles we meet Cornelius who has encountered Jesus and immediately desires to be His disciple, which begins with Baptism and the gift of the Holy Spirit. This is good news for us because we too then have received the prerequisites for discipleship - Baptism and the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The next step in being a disciple of Jesus is action. Encountering Jesus in the sacraments is meant to inspire us to glorify God through our praise of Him at Mass, our daily prayers, and through love of others. Furthermore, Jesus reveals to us clearly that we are his disciples if we do what he commands. For us today, Jesus commands us through Holy Scripture and the teachings of the Church. Are we attentive to His words in the Scriptures and making time to learn and apply His teachings to our lives? Our answers to these questions can help us see where we are in our path to be his disciples. Our parish survey results show that our parish’s understanding of discipleship is lacking and that there is opportunity for significant growth in this area for our parish. The survey asked the following in order to determine how we as a parish are living out our mission to be disciples of Jesus Christ:

  • "I have adequate support from my parish to help my child(ren) grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ". 9% of respondents stated that they strongly agreed, 40% stated that they agreed, 40% neither agree nor disagree, 8% disagree This is significantly lower than Diocesan average.

We have room to grow in our understanding of discipleship, and in our willingness to make opportunities for us to encounter the presence of Jesus, for truly only an encounter with Jesus can truly transform us into His enthusiastic followers. We are currently working on ways to encourage each of us to become more active in our faith to become disciples. This is great news as being a disciple of Jesus will bring a deeper experience of joy, love and peace because we will become friends with the Risen Lord!
