Mission of the Church
The Mission of the Church is given by Our Lord Jesus Christ, as recorded at the close of the Gospel of Matthew; Our Lord says; "go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." (Matthew 28:19)
The Mission of the Church therefore informs every aspect of the work of the Parish. 'Making Disciples' has to therefore be the reason behind all that we do.
Pope Francis states in his Apostolic Exhortation “The Joy of the Gospel" the following words;
"I dream of a 'missionary option', that is, a missionary impulse capable of transforming everything, so that the Church’s customs, ways of doing things, times and schedules, language and structures can be suitably channelled for the evangelisation of today’s world rather than for her self-preservation. The renewal of structures demanded by pastoral conversion can only be understood in this light."
