A Call to Make Missionary Disciples
“The core mission of the Church of Baltimore” is “the same mission entrusted to the Apostles by the Risen Lord before He ascended into heaven:
‘Go, therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit’ (Matthew 28:19).”
– Archbishop William Lori, A Light Brightly Visible
According to Pope Francis, today more than ever, this mission to evangelize calls for “boldness and creativity“; for “a willingness to rethink our goals,
structures, style and methods of evangelization“; and for rediscovering that “discipleship” and “mission” are inseparable.
In other words, it calls for authentic “missionary conversion.”
