Heart to Witness

Heart to Witness inspires parishioners to live the great Commission as disciples of Jesus – to welcome others and to share their joys with them in such a way that they desire to love God with all their heart.

Sacred Space Reflection : Jesus needs many helpers today. The harvest is as big as ever; people are as lost and rudderless as they have ever been. Where are the labourers? They are not just the bishops, priests, or religious. Every baptised person is called, in some way, to share the good news of Jesus Christ. Each of us has a vocation, a call to serve and to build the Kingdom of God. Let us pray today to know our unique vocation.



The ultimate missionary role we play is to invite others to know the love of Jesus.  When we experience something great, we can’t wait to tell others about it. Offering a loving invitation to others to journey with us toward life that is centered in and for Christ is the greatest form of discipleship.  The Heart to Witness Season offers Saint Bede a time each year to grow in their understanding of how to evangelize within the context of our faith – becoming witnesses in both word and deed.

We speak of the New Evangelization and the need to seek out those who have fallen away, but the call to evangelize is not really new. It is a perennial call to each Christian. Pope Paul VI affirmed in his letter On Evangelization in the Modern World: “We wish to confirm once more that the task of evangelizing all people constitutes the essential mission of the Church” (14).
