Discipleship Council

“Go and make disciples of all nations…” – Jesus to the Apostles 

In keeping with Our Lord’s word in the Great Commission, we believe that every human being is called to be a disciple of Jesus Christ in the Catholic Church. The St. Philip Discipleship Council exists to foster discipleship within the parish and its various ministries so that all may “have life, and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10)

Have you seen this poster around the church? Do you know what it means?

The poster is to help us remember as an umbrella covers us in the rain, prayer covers us against tough and trying times. Just remember these simple basics:

  • Worship: By coming to mass every Sunday and praying all the time.
  • Word: By reading the word of God and letting it transform us and give us strength, love and hope.
  • Community: We help each other, which helps our parish, which helps our community.
  • Service: When you join or participate in a ministry or event you are serving others.

Our Action Plan

The Discipleship Council developed a Spiritual (Action) Plan to address Vatican II Council’s dream that we might all live more intensely with Jesus. This Discipleship Plan (found in the link below) utilizes Word, Worship, Community and Service as a guide to assist St. Philip parishioners in their journey to follow Jesus Christ:
