Jesus went on his way through towns and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem.

Luke 13:22

This is an essential aspect of our Catholic faith. Over 2,000 years ago Jesus modeled for us the reconciling love of God in Christ by word, deed and evangelization. He offered this model of love through the active teaching of the 12 disciples and through the appointment of the seventy that He sent out in pairs of two to spread the Good News. We continue this tradition by passing down the faith to our children and by proclaiming the good news in our community, and to anyone we may encounter. For Jesus tells us that in order to have eternal life we must love the Lord God with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind and to love our neighbors as ourselves.


And he took bread, and when he had given thanks he broke it and gave it to

them, saying, “This is my body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”

Luke 22:19

We live our faith strengthened by our worship of God through the Eucharist that was instituted during the Last Supper prior to Jesus’ death and subsequent Resurrection. During the first Passover, the Israelites were saved from the angel of death by placing the blood of a lamb on their doorposts. During the Last Supper, Jesus tells his disciples how his blood will be shed for a different kind of deliverance. When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled, they were all in one place together. Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came to rest on each one of them. And they were filled with the holy Spirit…


Acts 2:1;3-4

In order to carry out the mission that Jesus gave, not only to the disciples, but to us as well, we are filled with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. This helps us to welcome and serve others. With the help of the Holy Spirit, we are empowered to share with others how the can be part of the story of salvation and understand God’s love for all.
