Grow & Go

GROW as a disciple of Jesus!

The purpose of your life is to grow continually in intimate relationship with God. The only way to do that is by striving to follow Jesus Christ closely and imitate him. Following Jesus Christ means we must accept his invitation to give him total lordship over everything in our lives and rely on the Holy Spirit to work in and through us at all times.

• PRAY every day
• STUDY the faith
• ENGAGE in parish life
• SERVE others’ needs

GO evangelize!

Jesus’ final command to his disciples was, “Go and make disciples of all nations.” (Mt 28:19) The true mark of a disciple is that they evangelize! Therefore, we must always strive to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with others.

• PRAY for those who are separated from God
• WITNESS about Jesus
• INVITE them to church
• ACCOMPANY them as they grow


Create your Personal Evangelization Plan. Use these questions to guide you as you Grow+Go:

To Grow as a disciple…

1. PRAY: When in your day will you commit to pray?
2. STUDY: What can you study, read and attend to learn about your faith this week?
3. ENGAGE: How can you become more involved in your parish?
4. SERVE: What can you volunteer to do this month to help those in need?

To Go and evangelize:

1. Ask the Holy Spirit to bring to mind someone in your life who is no longer coming to church. Write the person’s name on a piece of paper and answer these questions:
2. How will you pray for him/her?
3. How can you share your faith with him/her?
4. What could you invite him/her to?
5. How could you accompany him/her?

As we know, this is Good Shepherd Sunday.  An iconic image in our church, of our Christian faith.  Jesus, the Good Shepherd, the image of Christ holding a lamb on his shoulder, putting himself out for all.

The challenge for each on of us, who claim to follow Jesus, the Good Shepherd is to trust in Jesus. That He knows us and we know him.  To do that takes a great risk.  The risk is that we can live a holy and devout life.   Trust in the Good Shepherd.
