MONTREAL: RUNALPHA FOR CATHOLICS

“The Church which ‘goes forth’ is a community of missionary disciples who take the first step, who are involved and supportive, who bear fruit and rejoice. An evangelizing community knows that the Lord has taken the initiative, … and therefore we can move forward, boldly take the initiative, go out to others, seek those who have fallen away, stand at the crossroads and welcome the outcast… Let us try a little harder to take the first step and to become involved.” – Pope Francis
DO YOU DREAM OF BEING PART OF A MISSIONARY CHURCH? OF HAVING A PARISH FULL OF MISSIONARY DISCIPLES? OF A COMMUNITY THAT TAKES INITIATIVE TO CALL HOME THE LOST SHEEP? COME OUT AND FIND OUT HOW.
