ECLECIAL COMMUNITIES BASED ON THE LINE OF THE VATICAN COUNCIL II, MEDELLIN AND PUEBLA


The Latin American experience of the basic ecclesial communities stems from the renewal of the ecclesiology of the Second Vatican Council.
The council says: "The Church advances with all humanity, experiences the earthly lot of the world and its raison d'être is to act as leaven and soul of society" (Gs40)
Basic ecclesial communities arise and develop within the church, remaining in solidarity with their lives, nourished by their teachings, united with their pastors. From the need to live and still more intensely the life of the church or the desire for a more human dimension that can hardly be offered by the larger ecclesial communities, especially in the great contemporary cities that favor anonymity and overcrowding .... "They want to gather together to hear the word of God for the sacraments, the fraternal agape of the people that life itself finds already united in the struggle for justice, fraternal help to the poor, human promotion ..." (Paul VI, EN 58)

We also meet in small groups, Peace-Promoting Communities and Harmony (COPPAS) where a theme of the follow-up book is shared and applied to our daily lives. These are more intimate where we can share our differences and / or growth as couples. These meetings are held once a month by rotating in the homes of each couple in the COPPAS group. The schedule varies.


We organize a marriage retreat each year to integrate new partners into the ministry even though it is not a requirement to be a member of the ministry.

Fr. Michael Boehm and Father Salvador Vaca formed the grassroots ecclesial communities in 1997 at Waukegan, looking at the urgent need to discern ways in which the church in the United States can better respond to the presence of Hispanics / Latinos and empower Ways in which Hispanics / Latinos respond as evangelizers by being fermented from the kingdom of God.
1. Basic ecclesial communities as a community integrate family: adults, youth and children in close interpersonal relationship in faith.
2. As Ecclesial, it is a community of faith, hope and charity: celebrate the word of God in life, through solidarity and commitment to the New Commandment of the Lord "Love your neighbor as yourself" and Ecclesial mission and the visible community with legitimate Pastors, through the service of lay committed leaders.
3. It is basic, because it consists of a few brothers and sisters permanently and as a cell of the great community. There are currently 10 Base Ecclesial Communities in our Most Holy Trinity Parish We meet once a week to hear the word of God, read the gospel of Sunday and follow the method of the basic ecclesial communities SEE, JUDGE, ACT AND CELEBRATE.
