Frequently Asked Questions
DJM means Disciples of Jesus and Mary.
The purpose of DJM is to offer all people an on-going training program. This program enables all to grow spiritually and to work effectively in the world. It draws material from the Gospels, the teachings of the Church, and spiritual authors.
The DJM program consists of two phases. The first is "beginning formation", and the second is "on-going formation".
DJM's beginning formation consists of three parts: prayer, discernment and discipleship. In "prayer", you discover your plan of life and how to live it. "Discernment" guides you with the tools to recognize God's will and shows you how to fulfill it. "Discipleship" guides you on a lifelong journey. This journey consists of following Jesus, together with Mary, and leads to union with the Blessed Trinity.
DJM's on-going formation consists of disciples sent on specific missions. They serve the needs of their local parishes, under the directives of their local pastors. They study the teachings of the Church and follow specific directives to continue their lives as disciples.
