Living as Missionary Disciples Workbook Fourfold Methodology | Page 16

What opportunities does your parish offer for adult faith formation, for helping the parish live as an intentional community of missionary disciples? Does it offer retreats, small groups, opportunities for reflection, or parish missions? Does your parish’s ministries form authentic communities, or are they places where people show up to perform ministry tasks? Does your parish offer hospitality where one can form authentic friendships and community? What are some of the challenges that your parish faces when inviting others into community? What are some of the pros and cons that you have experienced when the parish adapts new strategies for hospitality? How does your parish strengthen families in their faith formation, specifically during sacramental moments? How does the parish accompany people into the community of faith?
