A LEGACY OF FAITH
Blessed Stanley Rather’s life teaches humility, trust, and unwavering faith in the Lord’s call to share His Good News with all. One Church, Many Disciples aims to spread this message and ensure the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City can continue his mission of service and love for years to come.
The campaign will provide for faith formation ministries, facilities, and programs for New Evangelization. It will allow the Church to reach out and minister to growing communities throughout the archdiocese. In these ways, we will continue the legacy of Blessed Stanley Rother.
We are all called through baptism into a deeper love of Christ and to share this love with all we meet. As missionary disciples, we must be everyday evangelizers, spreading the joy of the Gospel through daily life. As Pope Paul VI explained, evangelizing means bringing the Good News of Jesus into every human situation.
“Every Christian is challenged, here and now, to be actively engaged in evangelization; indeed, anyone who has truly experienced God’s saving love does not need much time or lengthy training to go out and proclaim that love.” – Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium
The mission of the One Church, Many Disciples campaign is to more fully embrace this challenge of evangelization and to continue Archbishop Coakley’s vision to “go make disciples” focusing on Faith Formation, New Evangelization and Hispanic Ministry.
