What was from the beginning,
what we have heard,
what we have seen with our eyes,
what we looked upon
and touched with our hands
concerns the Word of life—
for the life was made visible;
we have seen it and testify to it
and proclaim to you the eternal life
that was with the Father and was made visible to us—
what we have seen and heard
we proclaim now to you,
so that you too may have fellowship with us;
for our fellowship is with the Father
and with his Son, Jesus Christ.
We are writing this so that our joy may be complete. 1 John 1:1-4
As members of Mother of God Community, we desire to respond to God with grateful hearts by bringing Jesus to the world, in imitation of Mary, the Mother of God.
We are called to bear witness, in word and in deed, to the majesty of God and the Love he has lavished on us in Christ. (From the Mother of God Community Covenant)
Before being sent to evangelize, they would have to ‘be’ with Jesus, establishing a personal relationship with him. With this foundation, evangelization is no more than a proclamation of what has been experienced and an invitation to enter into the mystery of communion with Christ. Pope Benedict XVI, Deus Carias Est
Encountering Jesus, and the Love of God the Father, through the Holy Spirit, changes our lives so completely that we desire to pour out our lives back to God, and share that good news with others.
Mother of God Community has numerous and various ways that we as individuals, and as a community, respond to the Lord’s work in our lives and bear Him back into the world.
We invite you to attend some of our outreaches and community events, speak with us, or contact the office for more information on how you can respond to the Lord’s work in your life!
