In his last words to the apostles, Jesus gave them a mission:
“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” (Mt 28:19-20)
Thus, the teaching mission of the Church comes from Christ himself. The responsibility for fulfilling that mandate passes on unchanged to the bishops and to all Catholics. Our Lady of Good Counsel faith formation programs for children and adults present amazing opportunities for our parishioners to deepen their spiritual lives and grow closer to God. Programs are offered throughout the year for parishioners of all ages.
