Enrich your faith

“Jesus said to Simon, “Put out into deep water.”

~ Luke 5:4

Ways to enrich your faith

Make time for prayer

Prayer is essential to our faith, much like food is essential for our body. Through prayer, we grow closer to God and open ourselves to receive what God want us to be.

Prayer is not so we can attempt to change or convince God, rather, prayer changes us to be more accepting and trusting of God's grace in our lives.

More on prayer

Read the New Testament

Experience the good news of Jesus Christ first hand by reading Jesus's word in the gospels.  Continue reading the Acts of the Apostles which show how the Holy Spirit is active in the life of the church.  St. Paul and other others teach us how to actively live our life in Christ.  See below for sources.

Experience the Sacraments

Frequenting the sacraments is pivotal to our Catholic faith and draws us closer to Christ.

In the Eucharist, we enter into deeper communion with Jesus.

Through Reconciliation, we are forgiven and healed.  If you haven't been to confession for awhile, check out the USCCB's examination of conscience.

Missionary Discipleship

We hear about Missionary Discipleship, but what does that mean to you and me?  

Jesus said, “Follow me” (Mt 9:9), “Remain in me” (Jn 15:4) and “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations.” (Mt 28:9).  As we grow closer to Jesus, He invites us to share the gift of faith to others.  Missionary disciples embrace this invitation and find ways to share the reason for their hope in Christ (for more on this, go to the USCCB site).

Where is Christ leading you on your path of discipleship?
