Disciple Logos

Come join us in encountering the love of God in Christ Jesus in order to fully live our calling as missionary disciples. The encounter with God’s love is facilitated through the first announcement or kerygma, which is the proclamation of the saving message which is at the heart of the Gospel. 


Pope Francis speaks of the importance of the kerygma in Evangelii Gaudium, “We have rediscovered the fundamental role of the first announcement or kerygma, which needs to be the centre of all evangelizing activity and all efforts at Church renewal.  The kerygma is Trinitarian…. All Christian formation consists of entering more deeply into the kerygma…. It is the message capable of responding to the desire for the infinite which abides in every human heart.” (164, 165)

One example of the kerygma comes from John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.”  

In DISCIPLE, we invite you to encounter the love of God through the beautiful kerygma found in St. Paul’s letter to the Galatians, 4:4-7: “But when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to ransom those under the law, so that we might receive adoption.  As proof that you are children, God sent the spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” So you are no longer a slave but a child, and if a child then also an heir, through God.”
