Sacred Heart’s ‘Extra Mile’ Evangelization Team
SACRED HEART’S MISSION STATEMENT: Sacred Heart Parish is a faith community whose main purpose is to bring those within it into a closer relationship with God. This purpose is attained through a commitment of its members to the Gospel. By its very nature, our mission calls each of our parish members to share his/her gifts and talents for the benefit of others. Through such dedication, God is present to all.
‘EXTRA MILE’ EVANGELIZATION TEAM MISSION: To support and encourage the parishioners of Sacred Heart to fulfill their responsibility to spread Christ’s Gospel and live and share their faith with others. “ It is unthinkable that a person should accept the Word and give himself to the kingdom without becoming a person who bears witness to it and proclaims it in his turn." (Blessed Paul VI)
The Evangelization team has identified four (4) areas of focus and their purposes:
We are always looking for new members who have the Holy Spirit in their hearts! The purpose of the team is to share God’s love with others. First and foremost, each member must have a personal relationship with Christ and strengthen this relationship with daily prayer. Prayer is the most important part of this team, for without knowing the Lord personally, we simply cannot tell others about His amazing love. A team member should be a person who abides by the Catholic Church and her teachings, including placing the sacraments at the center of his or her faith life.
