Parish Discipleship Formation
Parish Mission Statement: We are a Catholic Community called to share the Good News of Jesus Christ while loving God, loving others, and making disciples.
What is a disciple?
Disciples are people who follow a specific teacher, learn from him, imitate him and spend their time with him. The best disciples would even begin to walk with the same gait as their teachers and be covered in the dust from their teacher’s sandals because they followed so closely to him. As disciples of Christ we model our lives after his first disciples.
How did Jesus form disciples?
One of Jesus’ first acts in beginning His public ministry was to form His small group (Matthew 4:18-22, Luke 6:13). The son of God certainly did not need the companionship or assistance of the disciples. Yet, from the very beginning, He elected to establish and minister within a framework of interpersonal relationships.
Making disciples at Queen of Peace
At Queen of Peace we are working to build a culture of discipleship. We want it to be normal for every member of our parish community to be connected to some form of a discipleship group. In order to see this happen we are focusing on supporting and equipping the faithful of our parish to form small groups where relationships are strengthened. Over the past year we have been developing resources and training leaders to fulfill our mission of making disciples. Because we are in the process of training leaders, we have just a few groups at this time who are actively meeting. Let us know how you would like to be involved by filling out our survey and join us in our mission of making disciples!

Only the beginning
As more members of our parish begin to take part in our mission by participating in training groups and discerning how God is asking them to lead, we will begin to see more people being lovingly drawn deeper into their Catholic faith through discipleship groups. We will become a parish where people feel more welcome and connected when they walk through our doors, and we will have people in every state of life who are actively reaching out to our wider community and sharing their faith confidently within their circle of influence.
