Liturgical Ministers Sharing Their Gifts
As we commission our Liturgical Ministers this weekend, I’d like to extend an invitation to all of you who might consider volunteering. It can be very rewarding to serve others at Mass and those who are homebound.
As Catholics, we serve God in many ways. Some tend to the sick and homebound. Some work with teens to help them seek Jesus and develop a good relationship with Him. Others do good works with the poor and those less fortunate. Still others work for peace and justice.
Here at Mass, we serve God and one another by being liturgical ministers, assisting others to enjoy a prayerful experience every time we get together for Mass. In our service, we strive to enable spiritual prayer so that all can find the peace and strength to live out God’s plan every day.
What we do at Mass is just as important as what we do in our homes and work. I am always grateful for the support and help of the many volunteers we have in this parish. It takes everyone to make Mass a holy and sacred time spent together.
Please ponder and pray about your own calling and the invitation that each of the baptized is given to share his or her time and talent as a liturgical minister.
