The Gospel reminds us that there are many challenges to following God's will faithfully, even for Jesus himself. This weekend, we will look at what it means to be a Parish that walks with people as they face these challenges and deepen their relationship with Christ.
The Disciples witnessed Jesus' transfigured, and it changed their lives forever. Their experience empowered them to go on and become His witnesses to the ends of the earth. What does our relationship with Christ mean to us? How are we called to live it out in our daily lives?
The Gospel reminds us that if we, as a Parish, are to bear fruit in the world, we must be willing to tend and care for each other and that each one of us must be committed to utilising our own gifts and talents for the building up of the community and the spread of the Gospel.
Each one us knows someone who, for one reason or another, has walked away from the loving embrace of their Father in heaven. This weekend we will look at how, as a Parish and as individuals, we are called to reach out and invite these people into an encounter with Jesus Christ.
