Reach More

Our Mother of Confidence is creating a new and dynamic lay ministry called “Reach More”. The mission of this important ministry will be outreach to “lapsed” Catholics as well as those “in the pew” who have become disconnected with their faith and are looking to renew their passion in Catholicism.

We feel that having lay people in leadership in this ministry will create a brand new culture of evangelization in our parish. In Pope John Paul’s encyclical letter “Christifideles Laici” he said: “…the lay faithful will be able to reach the hearts of their neighbors, friends, and colleagues, opening them to a full sense of human existence, that is, to communion with God and with all people.”

We are looking to build a small team of small group facilitators who will lead this ministry beginning in Lent with a series of 7 weekly meetings. Ministry training will begin in late November. All training materials will be supplied by the parish.

We will be holding an informational meeting next Tuesday, November 22 at 7 PM in Serra Hall for anyone interested in learning more about this ministry.

You can also contact me directly if you would like to discuss this in person.
