Missionary discipleship begins in the encounter each person has with our Lord, Jesus Christ. The Lord himself chose to encounter us - to draw us into closer relationship with Him - in the bread and wine that are consecrated at each Mass. Encountering Jesus in the Eucharist changes us, strengthens us, heals us - and that encounter can begin from the moment people walk through our Church doors (or even before!) When we truly recognize and believe that we encounter Love himself each time we approach the Eucharistic table, we are more intentional and deliberate about how we invite others in our parish to encounter the Body of Christ.
