Best You Can Be

Best You Can Be

 

Parishioners from the parishes of St Peter’s, Phibsboro, Christ the King, Cabra and Most Precious Blood, Cabra West, took part in Best You Can Be on Saturday 23rd June in St Brigid’s Pastoral Centre, Blanchardstown.

The facilitation team for the day was Ms Rosemary Lavelle (Pastoral Coordinator in the Office for Evangelisation and Ecumenism), Fr John Bracken, Co-P.P. Holy Cross Church, Dundrum and Ms Eilis O’ Reilly, parishioner in the parish of Ss. Peter and Paul, Balbriggan and a member of Bishop Ray Fields' Area Team. 

Best You Can Be is an introduction to developing adult faith. It aims to explore the nature of adult faith, and how the stages of faith development fit in with Pope Francis’ vision that Christians would continue to grow in their personal relationship with God. Best you Can Be encourages reflection on the stages of faith development and participants’ images of God.  The course is focused on Jesus as the One who shows us the way to be the best that we can be. Adult faith is about lifelong listening, learning and discerning.

Some comments from participants include….

“Today was an awakening”

“My faith has been reignited”

“It is a call to change for me”

“I feel I have a better understanding of my faith”

“I feel I have more confidence in taking up a role in leadership”

“I feel a call to reach out to others”
