March Leadership Team Meeting Notes

    • Prayer
      • Music by Sister Bernadette
    • Fr. Matias talk about discipleship
      • Matthew 28:19-20

 

  • Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.

 

    • The most important part of this great commission is to “make disciples”
    • Not only this, but we have to recognize that Jesus called his disciples to make other disciples
    • If you make disciples, everything else will fall into place
      • You don’t have to convince a disciple to go to Mass or to get baptized
      • If they are a disciple, they want to follow Jesus and will follow His commandments
    • It’s about going from spectator to player
    • One of the best signs of a disciple is someone who is wanting more, who is pushing in their faith, who is asking questions
    • We are in the business of making disciples
  • Welcome Team
    • Adding a bulletin to feature ministries
    • More concerted effort to focus on integrating newbies into the community
    • Want to partner with other ministries to help people connect
    • Making a binder or guidelines of sort to help volunteers
  • Making more cohesive ministries
    • Maybe have a ministry of the month
      • Example: Religious Education in September
    • This ministry would have access to the welcome team bulletin board to advertise for their ministry that month
    • The ministry would also help out with Sunday Social
    • That ministry would know to really advertise in that month to show the Church what the ministry does, get more people, etc.
  • Lent
    • Encourage people to sign up for the Lent newsletter thing on the website
    • Vinny Flynn is coming up for Lenten retreat
    • Hoping for a better turnout than the one for advent
    • Already advertising it
