Bishop Conlon Shares a Pastoral Letter on Missionary Discipleship

Bishop R. Daniel Conlon has been a bishop for 16 years. During that time, he has never written a pastoral letter.

Until now.

In the one he has entitled “Go,” He Said, Bishop Conlon writes about an important topic facing the Catholic religion today: how does the Catholic faith community within the seven counties of the Diocese of Joliet grow in the months and years ahead when statistics are showing that many are not attending Mass, and many are not celebrating the sacraments?

In a world that seems less interested in God, and in a society wounded by many divisions, in what ways can the Catholic Church reach people with the Good News of Jesus Christ?

In other words, how can we carry out, with the help of the Holy Spirit, Christ’s Great Commission: “Go and make disciples”?
