Education & Formation

Diane Whelan, Parish Council Representative

EducationAndFormation@StPhilipFranklin.com

The Church continues the mission of Jesus, to bring about God’s kingdom. This one mission is ever being accomplished through three ministries: Word, Worship and Service. Every form of catechesis is a participation in the ministry of the Word and therefore a participation in the mission of Jesus and the Church.

Evangelization

George Tutaj, Parish Council Representative

Evangelization@StPhilipFranklin.com

Experiences of community inspire us to share our Good News and experiences of being evangelized lead us to seek a community in which to live and celebrate our faith. Vibrant, spirit-filled parish communities commit themselves to continuing renewal of their own Catholic faith, to extending hospitality and welcome to those who have no Church nor faith tradition, and finally to witnessing to the faith in society by living Gospel values in the arenas of family, neighborhood, workplace, city, town and state.

They support families in many different situations. Through their interaction with and support of the other ministries of the parish they provide opportunities for families to develop their calling as the “domestic church” and strengthen the parish community as a means of support for all the people of God.

Social Action

Greg Caesar, Parish Council Representative

SocialAction@StPhilipFranklin.com

Jesus identified Himself as the one who had come to serve, not to be served. He cited: His ministry of service as key to His identity and mission (Luke 4:16) and clearly stated that anyone who aspires to follow Him must likewise serve the needs of all (Mt. 20:26 and Luke 22:26). These words point to the centrality of social ministry in the Church.

  • Reach out in service to those who are in need.
  • Speak out for the powerless.
  • Participate in social action to bring about change.
  • Work with those who suffer and are oppressed and help them to take charge of their own lives and act on their own behalf.
