The Family is Ground Zero for Mission

Creating Communities of Missionary Disciples
Workshop Title: The Family is Ground Zero for Mission

Pope Francis describes the family as “the privileged place for transmitting the faith” and therefore is ground zero for mission.  It is where the seeds of God’s love are first planted and nurtured.  However Jesus challenges us to take that love, cross boundaries and share it in ever widening communities of missionary disciples.  Using the example of the Holy Family, participants will reflect upon how to make the family the hotbed for mission, including practical suggestion on sharing the joy of the Gospel at home, work, school, parish, neighborhood and beyond. Sharing the love of God is our mission on this earth.

Workshop Time:  60-90 minutes
