What is Discipleship?

Christian discipleship means following in the footsteps of Jesus.  It is more than professing faith or meeting the obligation of going to Mass on Sundays.  It is an invitation to continue the work of Christ in the world around us.  As Catholic Christians, each of us are called to take the presence of Christ that we receive at Mass into the world of our daily lives.  How do we do this?  A good place to start is by reflecting on the Corporal Works of Mercy (as depicted in the windows at St. Frances Cabrini)

  • Feed the hungry
  • Shelter the homeless
  • Clothe the naked
  • Visit the sick and imprisoned
  • Bury the dead
  • Give alms to the poor

As a parish community, we offer many opportunities of outreach to those in need in our local community through the St. Vincent DePaul Society, Mary’s Kitchen, contributions to the food pantry, Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners to the community and the HALO project each Christmas.  Consider not only donating money or items but get involved and volunteer is some way.

Also, be present to those in you workplace, neighbors and family who are lonely and hunger for someone’s presence, or who are imprisoned by illness, addictions or abuse.  We do not need to look very far to find people that need Christ to be present to them.  Be a disciple and bring Christ’s presence to them.  For more information on how to get involved, contact Nick Perkoski at nperkoski@gmail.com or 440-599-8570
