One sad bumper sticker reads "The one with the most toys wins!" We all know the absurdity of living a life like this. A key principle and ethic of the Christian faith is service. In fact, it would be better to describe the goal of a happy life as: "The ones who die having served and poured themselves out for the sake of others wins!" We Catholics note this clearly in every Crucifix that we see, a reminder of Christ's selfless life, passion, death. And we also know that through death and loss and sacrifice, that life and hope and blessings flow!!!!!!
Every 3rd Sunday from Sept. to April, 10:30 a.m. Mass is Youth Mass. The ministries above that are marked with "*" are needed to be filled by YOUTH, which would count toward service hours (practice for Youth Music is at 9:30 am, before Mass) If you are interested in these Ministries OUTSIDE of the 3rd Sundays we can certainly get you into the regular rotation as well!
Please feel free to contact Donna (email button above) for other opportunities within the community.
