    Disciples in Mission 
    In this week's bulletin you will find some more detailed information from Claire Ramsbottom whom I have asked to serve as parish liaison for “Disciples in Mission.” It   includes specifics on meetings, details on registering and the hope that many parishioners will get involved.
     
    By way of clarification, the name of this effort is “Disciples in Mission: A      Pastoral Plan for the Archdiocese of Boston.” You will see the word “collaborative” used a lot and indeed OLOS is classified as a stand-alone      collaborative. For us the meaning is that we work together calling on all the talents of our parish to join in this effort at evangelization. It does not have the structural impact it has had in the recent past.
     
    The introduction to the plan gives a sense of what our goal is. “God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life” (Jn 3:16). For those of us who are baptized into Christ Jesus, this Gospel is both a comfort and a commission. It is indeed the consoling truth and grace of human life: we are created by God to live with him forever in the communion of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. At the same time, this truth is the Good News that Christ commanded his disciples to announce to the whole world. By her nature, then, the Church is a divine communion formed by and in Christ for the missionary work of    evangelization, the work of bringing the Gospel of Christ to all peoples.”
     
    Recognizing that our culture is increasingly secular and the consequent decline in religious adherence, we could simply denounce the state of affairs or do nothing. Neither is consistent with the command to preach the Gospel. “Disciples in Mission” is an effort to make concrete for the times we live in Christ’s command to announce the Good News to the whole world.

  • "smile supplies" needed

    The Christian Service Commission will be collecting travel size toothbrushes, toothpaste, and dental floss during the weeks of Oct. 14-22 to be given to the clients of the clinic where our parishioner Dr. Kitty O'Hare works. They are put together in kits for the patients to take home in an effort to promote good dental health. The donations can be left in the collection boxes at the back of the church any time during those two weeks. The staff of the clinic and the patients will be deeply grateful for your donations. Thank you for helping to promote healthy teeth. Gums and smiles for those who struggle to provide the very basics of living.
