Forming Intentional Disciples

How can we transmit a living, personal Catholic faith to future generations? By coming to know Jesus Christ and following him as his disciples.

Our June 1st Diocesan Day of Enrichment will focus on strategies for revitalizing the church at the parish level. At a time when only a third of Americans raised Catholic are still practicing and just over half of Catholics believe in a personal God, the opportunities for discipleship within our faith communities is more important than ever.
