About this title

Synopsis:

"It is not the same thing to have known Jesus as not to have known him, not the same thing to walk with him as to walk blindly, not the same thing to hear his word as not to know it.... We know that with Jesus life becomes richer."-Pope Francis, The Joy of the Gospel

In her first book, Forming Intentional Disciples: The Path to Knowing and Following Jesus, Sherry Weddell, cofounder of the Catherine of Siena Institute, captured the attention of Catholics across the globe as she uncovered the life-changing power that accompanies the conscious decision to follow Jesus as his disciple.

Now, in the groundbreaking Becoming a Parish of Intentional Disciples, she has gathered together experienced leaders and collaborators whose exceptional field-tested wisdom and enthusiasm for transforming Catholic parishes into centers of discipleship and apostolic outreach is both inspiring and practical.

The authors consider:

  • The role of intercessory prayer in parish transformation
  • How "fireside chats" can help a pastor connect with his parishioners and call them to personal discipleship and mission
  • The co-responsibility of lay people and pastors in the work of making disciples
  • The revolutionary impact of a discipleship approach to youth ministry
  • How one parish successfully fostered a culture of intentional discipleship, and much more

As Sherry asks in her own chapter, "Are we willing to answer the call and pay the price necessary to become a new generation of saints through which God can do extraordinary things in our time?"

About the Author:

Sherry Anne Weddell created the first charism-discernment process specifically designed for Catholics in 1993. She co-founded and serves as co-Director of the Catherine of Siena Institute, an affiliated international ministry of the Western Dominican Province.
Sherry has developed numerous unique formation resources that are used around the world. She trains and leads an international team of teachers and trainers who have worked directly with over 100,000 ordained, religious, and lay Catholics in over 120 dioceses on 5 continents. When not hanging around airports, Sherry enjoys tending her high altitude Tuscan garden in the Colorado Rockies.
