By the grace of Baptism, we  are  anointed missionary disciples, charged to bring  the Gospel to every one we meet. To be  Baptised in  Jesus Christ is to find in Him the source of one’s true identity. It is to accept and try to live out the  purpose for which we are created: to know, to love and to serve God, and to be with God in eternal life. Many Catholics express this identity as disciples in Parish Ministry, to build Community locally and to share the Church’s project of  Evangelisation  and the sanctification of the whole World.

To live a good life requires us to change and to grow. In turn, growth requires that we nourish ourselves – physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually.

To carry out our mission effectively as Jesus’ disciples, we need to devote attention, effort, and time to our life of Faith and our relationship with God. At the heart of this is the need for on-going formation and education in the Catholic Faith and renewal in our spiritual life.

Evangelisation “is not reserved to some ‘mission professionals,’ but must be the profound yearning of all the lay faithful called, in virtue of their Baptism.”

Pope Francis, 12 November 2015
