BEC

BEC2 2

Church of St Francis Xavier developed and encourage sense of belonging through Basic Ecclesial Communities (BECs). Each parish maps smaller neighbourhood areas where all the Catholics are then given opportunities to get to know each other and form stronger community relationships. Every baptised Catholic belongs to their neighbourhood area (BEC) unless they choose not to.

BECs are giving me permission to say 'hello' to people. It helped me realise that the church is about reaching out to people. It's given me a freedom to approach others and get to know them which is something Catholics don't do very easily. It's made me more confident to say 'hello' and as you hear more people's stories and find out more about them, you can ask about how things are going in their lives.

The whole parish is subdivided into neighbourhood communities where Catholics can meet and get to know each other on their ‘own patch’. Each neighbourhood has a team of people who:

visit 10-12 other households in friendship several times each year;
nurture the network of relationships in the neighbourhood through visiting and neighbourhood gatherings;
gather together for support and faith reflection; and
link the people with the wider parish community.
