Missional Communities in Rural Parishes

The Ascension Team

Rural communities have Catholic parishes too, and they should be celebrated! Today, Gomer shares a talk he gave to Omaha Archdiocesan “Rural Lead” program to help parishes become missional communities.

Snippet from the Show

“We worship God through the sacraments, so we wanna make sure people understand what it means to worship God at the mass. It doesn’t mean you sing really loudly, it means you worship from ever greater depths of the core of your being.”
