How to Begin
and accordingly, deserves careful planning.
The following are intended to help a parish to draw up its own preparatory plan.
Speak to a few people about the cell vision,
towards community, renewal of faith and evangelization,
in today's world.
Make contact with people who benefit from participating in a cell group.
Find out what resources are available.
Share your hopes with your local priests.
Plan some specific event, e.g.
* arrange for a few parishioners to visit a parish where cells exist
* invite a number of people together to arrange the "Come and See Programme"
* organise people who may be interested,
to run this programme or to launch cell groups in your parish.
* invite cell participants to speak at weekend masses to help with the launch.
and most important of all, Pray.
