All of us are already engaged in ministry. Together in the Mass, we offer Christ to the Father for the good of ourselves,  the Church, and the world.   With the presence of God and his grace, we minister to our families and all we meet every moment of our lives.  But it is also good to be involved in organized ministries because we can do more together than apart; indeed our parish and our community needs us.  For our own continued growth and for all those in need, please consider trying out any of the following ministries.

“Upon all the lay faithful, then, rests the exalted duty of working to assure that each day the divine plan of salvation is further extended to every person, of every era, in every part of the earth.” –St. John Paul II
