Welcome to Nativity’s Education Commission Page!
Why do we have an education commission?
Take a look at what two of our Popes have to say.
“Evangelizing is in fact the grace and vocation proper to the Church, her deepest identity. She exists to evangelize.” (Evangelii Nuntiandi, no. 14, Pope Paul VI, December 8, 1975)
“Jesus continually sends us forth to proclaim the Gospel of the love of God the Father in the power of the Holy Spirit. Moved by the Spirit, Mary welcomed the Word of life and may our Virgin Mother obtain for us renewed zeal in bringing to everyone, the Good News of the life that is victorious over death. May she intercede for us so that we can acquire the holy audacity needed to discover new ways to bring the gift of salvation to every man and woman.” (Pope Francis from the Vatican, 4 June 2017, Solemnity of Pentecost)
There are so many ways to bring the Gospel to every man and woman in our parish and beyond. Each one of us, by virtue of our Baptism, is called to this existence in the Church.
How can you be a part? The first way is to continue to participate in your own evangelization through study, prayer, and works. The second way is to participate in the evangelization of others through study, prayer, and works. We all continue for a lifetime – until we rest with our Heavenly Father.
Check back as this page develops opportunity for you as an evangelizer for yourself and for others.
