20year

Our community has more than twenty years of history in Dallas. What began as five or six families coming together to study the Bible and pray together, quickly became a community that regularly gathered at nearby churches for Masses and meetings. As the numbers grew, they requested that the Diocese of Dallas help establish a permanent Chinese Catholic community in 1990. In 1992, we put our money together and purchased a small office building in Richardson, Texas. By the end of 1993, we had renovated it to become our sanctuary and activity hall. With the guidance of priests seconded from Taiwan and the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit, our small community grew stronger in numbers and in faith.

陪伴員的資格與責任



由於陪伴員與求道者必須建立關係,而且這關係應以信仰、支持與信賴為基礎,因此陪伴員應具有以下幾項要求。

1. 在求道者努力效法耶穌,遵守耶穌教導的同時,陪伴員必須為求道者樹立好榜樣,並擔任他的顧問與良師。所謂「顧問」,就像一位教練,能給與忠告,激勵求道者更努力地在信仰生活中成長,並幫助求道者珍惜他的天賦,克服各種不良習慣。

2. 陪伴員必須是一位已經領過堅振聖事的熱心教友。「熱心」是指他熱愛天主、重視個人的靈修生活、參與每主日彌撒、按時恭領聖體與和好聖事,並積極參與堂區的活動,樂意為堂區,為教友奉獻及服務。

3. 父母不能擔任兒女的陪伴員。在領洗時,求道者也可以另請他人擔任代父母﹝不一定要邀請陪伴員為代父母﹞。陪伴員的性別不須與求道者相同。

4. 陪伴員必須年滿十六歲。

5. 陪伴員必須能撥出時間,關心求道者在信仰成長上的需要。

6. 陪伴員必須具有領導求道者的能力,並重視個人教義的進修。

7. 陪伴員必須參加慕道團的聚會﹝每週或每月一次﹞、避靜、慕道階段中的各項禮儀和入門聖事彌撒等。

8. 慕道階段中,陪伴員與求道者保持密切連繫,按時與求道者會面,關心求道者信仰的成長:

聆聽求道者在信仰生活所作的努力及經驗到的困難。

↑鼓勵、規勸求道者。

→對所聽到的事要絕對保守秘密。

↓決定下次會面分享的內容與時間。
