Disciples on the Way

DisciplesOnTheWayCover"Disciples on the Way" is an invitation from Bishop Ricken to all Catholics of the Diocese of Green Bay to embark upon a missionary journey into the new evangelization. Released in the Spring of 2014, this invitation is a deepening of the first pastoral letter entitled "Parishes: Called to Be Holy, Fully Engaged, Fully Alive" and is a response to the increased emphasis within the universal church focused on the new evangelization.

Bishop Ricken's pastoral reflection for Phase 1 of Disciples on the Way is entitled "Teach My People to Pray" and was released in August of 2014. "The call of these first two years, is to put first things first, which is all about establishing priorities centered around God; especially in our time, our talent and our treasure, our prayer, our service, and our sharing. I would like to invite all the faithful in the Diocese to take the next step in deepening our prayer lives," Bishop Ricken notes.

"Teach My People to Pray" is Bishop Ricken's pastoral reflection for Phase 1: Formation in Prayer & Holiness (2014-15) for Disciples on the Way.

"The call of these first two years, is to put first things first, which is all about establishing priorities centered around God; especially in our time, our talent and our treasure, our prayer, our service, and our sharing.

As Bishop Ricken puts it: "Responding to the deep desire of our parishes to embrace and embody the New Evangelization, we must begin as 'Disciples on the Way' with a two-year emphasis on prayer. During these first two years, we will strive to answer the Lord's call to "teach my people to pray.'"

Parishes are encouraged to use the accompanying implementation guide for "Teach My People to Pray," compiled by the Department of New Evangelization, as a resource to create their pastoral ministry plans. The suggestions are a starting point to foster a culture of intentional discipleship in your parish.

Every parish in their spiritual tradition, structure and composition, is asked to implement and focus on these and other ideas to fit their particular needs. A willingness to be bold and look afresh at the parish through the new evangelization is encouraged!

In his invitation to "Disciples on the Way," Bishop Ricken asks us "all to focus very clearly on the call to renew our prayer lives by by establishing and deepening our relationship with with Jesus Christ and His Holy Church."

"Disciples on the Way" is an invitation from Bishop Ricken to embark on a missionary journey into the new evangelization. It deepens the first pastoral letter, "Parishes: Called to Be Holy, Fully Engaged, Fully Alive," and responds to the increasing emphasis in the universal church on the new evangelization.

As Bishop Ricken puts it: "I would like to invite everyone to a journey; a journey of deepening our prayer life, of learning to be better disciples ourselves and of making disciples of others for the sake of the Kingdom of God. I invite each and every one of you to journey as the body of Christ with your Pastor or Pastoral leader and with your fellow parishioners in living out this 'mission map' as a 'Disciple on the Way.'"

The journey is divided into three emphases: Formation in Prayer and Holiness (2014-16), Formation in Discipleship (2016-18), and Formation in Mission (2018-20).

Disciples on the Way Year IIDisciples on the Way: Year II

In this second year of "Disciples on the Way," an invitation from Bishop Ricken to embark on a missionary journey into the new evangelization, he asks "that you continue to seek ways to pray together in your household and grow to love the Lord and the church. I especially ask you to transform your home into a school of prayer and love by making the Holy Family of Jesus, Joseph and Mary your model and example."

Bishop Ricken continues: "In the words of St. John Paul II, the mission of the family is to 'guard, reveal and communicate love' (1) and the family serves as a school of compassion, respect, humility and forgiveness in the midst of a world darkened by self-absorption, conflict and selfishness. Whether you live by yourself or with others, your home is a household of faith where Christ is at the center of your life."
