A New Year, A “Year of Commitment”
We have various ministries in our parish. Be it singing or playing bells in the choirs, lectors, acolytes, ushering, cooking etc. We also have organizations that worships our Lord in their services, such as the SAMBS, YMSR and Youth. Ministries can be found in working around the parish worship center with little odd and ends such as polishing the liturgical appointments to prayer blankets. A Mission & Evangelism Committee is being formed. We have something for everyone. Speak with Father and he will direct you to a ministry that would utilize your God given gifts.
