Mentorship through Christian friendship
Pope Francis invites us all into Christian friendship, which he calls personal accompaniment. He tells us that the Church will have to initiate everyone into the 'art of accompaniment' which teaches us to remove our sandals before the sacred ground of the other. He goes on to say that although it may sound obvious, spiritual accompaniment must lead others ever closer to God. He concludes by saying missionary disciples accompany missionary disciples. (Evangelii Gaudium 169, 170, 173)
In an effort to follow Pope Francis' call, St. B's has recently created a new spiritual mentor ministry called Companions in Christ. Spiritual companions will be paired with a mentor who is also a young adult, or someone from a different generation, depending on preference.
