Catholic Diocese of Jackson

Priority Two

Facilitate Life-Long Formation of Intentional Disciples

Jesus continually calls us all to deepen our relationship with Him. Like Jesus, we will educate and form each person to become intentional disciples.

“And what you heard from me through many witnesses entrust to faithful people who will have the ability to teach others as well.”
2 Timothy 2:2

We will nurture a deeper knowledge and understanding of who and why, and what we are called to be as Catholic disciples. Through that deeper personal relationship with God, neighbor and creation, we will go forth into the world to build the Kingdom of God.
