The New Evangelization


Next meeting is Thursday, July 27 at 7 pm in the Parish Center.

St. James + New Evangelization = ChristLife
We are excited to begin launching evangelization and discipleship efforts here at St. James!   We will utilize ChristLife, Catholic Ministry for Evangelization.   The ChristLife series is a three step evangelization process that is changing lives and transforming parishes.   The series consists of three essential elements: discover, follow and share.

Understanding What the New Evangelization Is
The New Evangelization is a call to share the unchanging Truth of Jesus Christ using new strategies (ie technology, social media, etc.) with new ardor, new methods and new expression so that Jesus Christ and His love can be accessed by all.

Information and Prayer session Launches the New Evangelization.
As we begin praying, planning and preparing, we held an information and prayer session.   If you couldn't come but feel a call to help further these efforts and apostolates in our parish, please call and get involved!   This will be an important time of fellowship and prayer in our parish as we prepare for what God wants to do at St. James.   For questions, please contact Josie Clarey at the Parish Office, 402-572-0499.  

What can You do?  Pray: offer up prayers, activities or certain parts of your day for the mission of evangelization at SJ.   Begin asking Jesus how He is calling  you to put out into the deep and be prepared to be challenged.   Scripture passages to pray with include Luke 4:1-11, Romans 10:13-15, Ephesians 2:10 and 2 Thess 2:1-10.  

Read: the Church has priceless and valuable resources in terms of books and videos for us to learn and grow in our faith.  Ask for recommendations!  Scott Hah: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v+i_oJF7ghgWM or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6qwyx1igxYY

 Also, LISTEN.   Start listening to what God is putting on your heart and the hearts of those around you   How can we best serve the people God has entrusted to us?
