As leaders in the faith community, the parish staff are to guide the faithful to embrace their baptismal call to make Christ tangibly present in the world. To support parish administrative staff, author Stephen S. Wilbricht, csc, and a team of ministers—religious educator Cristina Castillo, music director Michael Conrady, volunteer coordinator Caroline Okello, and pastor Father Patrick A. Smith—  present an examination of the communal nature of baptism, concrete examples from pastoral ministers of ways discipleship is lived out, and seven short prayer services that reflect on aspects of baptism.

Pastoral teams can use Anointed to Lead at their regular staff meetings or during a mini-retreat. With discussion questions and short prayer services, this resource is a perfect starting point for rich ministerial conversations and strategic planning. Chapter by chapter, you can devote thirty minutes at a monthly staff meeting exploring ways to intentionally form your parishioners for "baptismal living." Together, your pastoral staff will reflect on their vocation so that they can help the entire community deepen their own sense of missionary discipleship.

The Anointed series invites the entire parish community to reflect on "baptismal living" and the ways in which we are called to lead. These resources give parish leaders the tools they need to inspire and form their parish community to live out their baptismal roles as priest, prophet, and king in our world today.
