PEACE BE WITH YOU. As the Father has sent me, so I send you. The new life in Christ that we celebrate at Easter is given to us in Baptism so that our life will never be same. We receive the Holy Spirit and are filled with God’s grace to be sent forth to fulfill God’s will, just as Jesus did. The goal of On Mission for The Church Alive! is for us to be renewed in our baptismal mission to go forth as followers of Jesus and lead others to Him. How can you share the peace and love of God with those who need it most so that their lives can be transformed? To stay involved visit
