The Disciple Minister will be responsible for development, facilitating and promoting formation of young disciples, working collaboratively with the adult discipleship program, to help all grow in faith
Our Lady of Charity Parish is located in the city of Buffalo, and is the largest city parish in the Diocese with 2,200 families registered. Our parish has two worship sites which are both fully utilized. Our parish embarked this past year on revamping our entire faith formation program and entitled it our Discipleship Program. The program focuses on making all aspects of our parish and faith life catechectical, empowering parents and guardians to be the primary teachers in the ways of faith giving the resources and information to help all pass on the faith. It also works to raise the awareness of our parish that all of us are disciples in training. The program has a Sunday component once a month that utilizes the mass as part of the program. Adults and children learn together, at age appropriate levels and help one another to grow in faith. The program also has a Monday component where families gather together for a 15 minute prayer experience first, praying as a family. After the prayer experience, all school ages are divided into grade levels, and learn the monthly theme in classroom settings. Adults are expected to participate in adult discipleship during that time as well, learning the important parent components of the monthly topic, as well as giving parents tools and resources to teach the lesson at home in the coming month. Immediate sacramental preparation is the responsibility of the parents, with sacramental coordinators helping parents to prepare their children to receive the sacraments. Sacraments are celebrated when the children demonstrate a solid faith foundation, not upon age. The youth ministry program has a strong core of youth that are excited about their faith, participating in Christian Leadership Institute, the Diocesan Youth Convention, and work to stay actively involved in ministry and parish life.
