Dear Friends,

This week, we are reproducing (from the third of our three-part series on growth. The previous two articles treated of:

1. Mission: God has called you to be a part of his light-bearing mission. We are made to bring God’s love to life in the world, and we can make this happen by trusting and following Jesus.

2. A simple plan of life is the good scaffolding we need to give ourselves entirely to God and his purposes. Implementing the five essential pillars of Christian Discipleship - Sunday Mass, Monthly Confession, Daily Prayer, Serving, and Giving - will see us well on our way to growth in our relationship with God.

This week, we look a little more closely at those five pillars. You’ll see why we consider them essential practices. If you want to explore on your own, go to the website and click on the heading for GROW.

Here at the parish we are well equipped to help you grow. Know of my prayers for you as you learn to live Jesus’ way of life, and don’t hesitate to reach out to me for the support and strength you need as we walk this way together.

Christ’s peace,
Father Daniel
