Parish Ministries manifest a parish family's desire for active service.
All ministries demonstrate the devotion, love, and ongoing desire for the building up of a parish community in many diverse ways...
Both time and talents are abundant here...
Bored, tired, feeling uninterested?
The word you need is "involvement"-- meaning, of course, taking part in activities interesting to you and hopefully helpful to someone or something. The giving of your time, attention and love to a project you find fulfilling is INVOLVEMENT in capital letters!
Wanna be involved...
Parishioners to be met, food to be distributed, joining a group to reverence and defend the right for human life, attendance at meetings meant to enhance the quality of our parish's life, and helping during various events meant to bring us together and closer as the family of the people of God, is what St. Theresa is all about...
Catch the Spirit!
Whether year-round or seasonal parishioner...
Be a Parish Volunteer Minister...
