Catholic discipleship refers to a committed approach to living a Christian life within the Catholic Church. … The U.S. Catholic bishops have described disciples as those who “make a conscious, firm decision, carried out in action, to be followers of Jesus Christ no matter the cost to themselves.”
We all want to grow. And God wants us to keep growing. Formation helps us grow in our relationship with Jesus, our understanding of the Catholic faith, and in becoming the best version of ourselves. Whether you are 7 or 70, there is always a place for you to grow at Mary, Mother of the Church.
A recent book by Sherry Weddell, Forming Intentional Disciples, outlines five stages of spiritual growth that illustrate the experience of growing into disciples of Christ with a spiritual maturity.
These five stages of spiritual discipleship are not written in stone. People may pass through them in a different order or waffle between them throughout their life. Look through these stages. Do you see yourself in one of them? We can help you find where to get started.
