Called. Formed. Sent.
The Eucharist & Missionary Discipleship
Bishop Baker's Pastoral Letter
Bishop Baker has promulgated his pastoral letter "Called. Formed. Sent..." as a way for us to prepare for the Eucharistic Congress with our focus on Missionary Discipleship. The letter encourages us to examine how our parish communities call people to Jesus, make disciples, and how we are each sent to be missionaries of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Bishop Baker has asked parishes to set up three sessions where we study one of the three sections of the letter in each session. Beautifully designed and printed copies are available to use in your parish study for a free-will offering by contacting the Diocesan Office of the Chancellor at (205)838-8322. The books are printed both in English and Spanish in one piece.
When finished, provide all the names of those who joined in the study to Alex Kubik in the Office of Discipleship and Mission at (205)776-7186 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. At the Eucharistic Congress, Bishop Baker will have a special commissioning as missionary disciples for all of those who are named.
