“Go and make disciples of all nations…”
– Jesus to the Apostles
In keeping with Our Lord’s word in the Great Commission, we believe that every human being is called to be a disciple of Jesus Christ in the Catholic Church. The St. Philip Discipleship Council exists to foster discipleship within the parish and its various ministries so that all may “have life, and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10)
Our Discipleship poster is to help us remember that as an umbrella covers us in the rain, prayer covers us against tough and trying times. Just remember these simple basics:
By reading the word of God and letting it transform us and give us strength, love and hope.
By coming to mass every Sunday and praying all the time.
We help each other, which helps our parish, which helps our community.
When you join or participate in a ministry or event you are serving others.
The Discipleship Council developed a Spiritual (Action) Plan to address Vatican II Council’s dream that we might all live more intensely with Jesus. This Discipleship Plan (found in the link below) utilizes Word, Worship, Community and Service as a guide to assist St. Philip parishioners in their journey to follow Jesus Christ:
Discipling Opportunities at St. Philip Catholic Church
The Discipling Opportunities (links below in English and Spanish) provide guidance to parishioners on being disciples of Jesus Christ as we “joyfully celebrate the Eucharist as a community and share and proclaim the the Word of God with our neighbors.”
