Go and Make Disciples: A National Plan and Strategy for Catholic Evangelization

United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB, 2002) provides three goals for Catholic Evangelization in the United States.

Goal I: Renewal

“Bring about in all Catholics an enthusiasm for their faith that, in living their faith in Jesus, they freely share it with others.”

Goal II: Invitation

“Invite all people… to hear the message of salvation in Jesus Christ so that they may come to join us in the fullness of the Catholic faith.”

Goal III: Transformation

“Foster gospel values in our society, promoting the dignity of the human person, the importance of the family, and the common good of society, so that our nation may continue to be transformed by the saving power of Jesus Christ.”

Hospitality

Hospitality is the hallmark of Christianity. It is patterned on the life of Jesus who welcomed the children, the sinner, the healthy and unhealthy, the repentant and unrepentant. Scripture offers insights into the importance of hospitality beginning with Abraham in the Book of Genesis and running through to the invitation to the messianic banquet in the Book of Revelation.

Small Christian Communities

Since the time of Jesus who gathered a small band of twelve, small communities have been an important dimension of church life. Just as the early church kept the faith alive we gather to pray, share faith, support one another, continue to learn and reach out to others through small Christian communities.
