Growing Disciples


Five Foundations Series

  • What we mean when we use the word "Discipleship;"
  • Discerning what Jesus intended for all of us based on how he called his first disciples; and 
  • How to live out vibrant discipleship - both in our personal apostolates and in our parishes.

Link to Video is below (The Five Foundations).

Part 4 information below:

Growing Disciples - The Five Foundations | Part 4: The Eucharist

Do you believe in the true presence of Jesus in the Eucharist? Did you know that the Mass is our invitation to join in Christ’s sacrifice and participate in communion with God and love for Jesus? Father Luke Spannagel, Priest and National Eucharistic Preacher for the Diocese of Peoria, and Ana Rodas, Assistant Director of Divine Worship for the Diocese of Peoria, discuss how we can come to know and experience Christ’s true presence in the Eucharist, so that our participation in the Mass produces the fruit our Lord intended when He gave us the gift of sharing in communion through the Eucharist – a foundational understanding essential to the Growing Disciples pastoral planning process.
