Ephesians 2:10 says we are God’s masterpieces, created in Christ to do good works. When we volunteer for our parish, we are doing God’s work and fulfilling His plan for our lives. Imagine this: God created you, His masterpiece, to do awesome stuff. Through Christ, you can and do make a difference. When you serve, you are helping to change lives. This is true regardless of where you serve.

Ephesians 4:7 “But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift.” God wants to use you! He has chosen you for the purpose of doing great things for Him. God wants you to listen to His calling and to use the gifts He has given you.

We have been truly blessed by the spirit of generosity in our parishes. The dedication and joy our members have helping others inspires us on a daily basis. We believe that generosity means sacrificing for the sake of God and others. Not only is generosity measured in terms of monetary donations, but also our members’ willingness to donate their time and talent. We find that when we give to others so that they may flourish, our hearts bloom as well. There are two ways to donate to our parishes, a one time donation, or monthly giving.
Joining a religious group provides a way for Christians to live out their faith outside of hearing the word. If Sunday morning is for listening, then the rest of the week is for living. Whether it’s discussing the Sunday homily, talking about a spiritual battle, or simply praying for one another, small groups create a context for Christians to live out their faith in real life.
