The 4 stages of apostleship

Feast of St. Luke the Evangelist (October 18)

The 4 Stages of ApostleshipHandout or Bulletin Insert.

Description: In Luke 10:1-9, Jesus sends his disciples forth as evangelizers. This is our apostleship; it’s the mission of the Church. We’re sent forth as evangelizers at the end of every Mass. The priest, speaking for Jesus, empowers us with words such as: “Go and announce the Gospel of the Lord” or “Go in peace, glorifying the Lord by your life.” Or, as in Luke 10:3, “Go on your way! Behold, I am sending you!” Jesus commissions us and commands us to go and make a difference in the world in whatever capacity we can, in our homes, workplaces, recreation, etc. There are four stages of apostleship: Preparation, Involvement, Testing, and Significant Involvement. This handout includes the “Prayer to Become God’s Instrument”.
