Formation in Prayer and Holiness: Teach My People to Pray

Pastoral-Reflection-Teach-My-People-to-Pray-cover"Teach My People to Pray" is Bishop Ricken's pastoral reflection for Phase 1 of Disciples on the Way: Prayer and Holiness. "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" Implementation Guide

Resource-Booklet-CoverParishes 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, may certainly decide 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!
