Be "Salt of the Earth" and "Light for the World"

Every Sunday we go for mass to nourish ourselves on the one bread and one body of Jesus Christ. And at the end of the mass, the priest sends us forth - to "proclaim the good news" or "go forth and love and serve the Lord in others" or using other words to that effect.

That is exactly what we should be doing for the other six days of the week.

As individual Catholics there is a lot we can do to serve Christ in the poor, the sick and the lonely in our midst. But there's so much more we can do working in small faith communities.

The Neighbourhood Christian Communities - or NCCs - try to live out the spirit of the early Christians by sharing what we have and taking care of each other. We come together to pray for each other and a partake in fellowship. And we also lend ourselves individually and as a group to the needs of the other people living in the neighbourhood.

If you are not already active in your NCC, contact the coordinator of the NCC closest to your block.
