If you haven’t had a chance to respond to my letter, please take a few moments now to fill out a card and return it with your pledge or contribution. Every dollar counts and no amount is too small. We need everyone to help us make this another successful year. Thousands of people throughout the diocese receive food, shelter, counseling, and other services through your sacrifices and generosity. Thank you very much for your help.
The heart of a parish is the Eucharist, but the parish family is the body that makes it a unique and vibrant community with an exciting parish life. Our parish offers a variety of ways to be part of that communal family in addition to the celebration of the sacraments.
Faith formation is a vital element of the Catholic life as we grow in knowledge and understanding of our faith in Jesus Christ and the Church he gave us. A deeper understanding can lead to a more intimate relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and through the Trinity to the Church and our family, friends, neighbors, parish, and community. Such faith formation is not just for children, but for all of us as we grow as Catholics. Our parish has many opportunities for faith formation that we encourage you to explore.
Another way to participate in our parish life are the various parish ministries, including altar servers, and Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist; also youth ministry, men’s and women’s groups, Knights of Columbus, St. Vincent de Paul Society to name just a few. God calls us to use our gifts and talents to glorify Him and make life better for other people. Please prayerfully consider these opportunities for getting involved in ministry.
