The Mission of the Church
We can say that Jesus’ mission was to make God known to us and to
win eternal life for us by His death on the cross.
He sent the Apostles on their mission to proclaim the good news of Jesus’ love. Jesus started the Catholic Church by teaching and revealing God to them,
sending the Holy Spirit to descend upon them with the fullness of God’s grace.
By your Confirmation, you are being sent on a mission by Jesus. He wants you to live out your faith and to help others learn about Him and to follow Him
because you have received the fullness of grace too.
Go live in the Spirit!
Pancake Breakfast by the Knights of Columbus is this Sunday, June 2, 2019.

A BEAUTIFUL WAY TO PRAY FOR
THE GRACE OF SERVANTHOOD

from our gift shop for $15.
This candle with the OLM prayer on each side
