Go Out and Make Disciples

Diocese of Joliet Launches a Unified Pastoral Initiative for 650,000 Catholics and 120 Parishes

The Diocese of Joliet has released a framework for pastoral action that focuses on the initiatives of discipleship, evangelization, and charity.  Its overall theme is “Go Out and Make Disciples” and it urges all Catholics to reach outside their church doors as part of their ministry efforts. Our St. James Parish Council has been planning and implementing elements of the plan into our experience as a faith community. To learn more about the Pastoral Plan, please click here.
