A Letter From Father Noel

In Ephesians 4:16 God gives us His blueprint for the growth and building up of the Church which is that everybody does their part. We are all commanded to serve. God has empowered people to do His work through the ministry of the Holy Spirit in their lives. He gives all believers spiritual gifts to enable them to do the task(s) He wants them to do. God’s objective is that we be instruments of His grace to other people in specific ways through the use of the gifts He has given (1 Peter 4:9-11).

1 Corinthians 12:11 says “All these are the work of the one and the same Spirit, and He gives them to each one just as he determines. God is intentional in His distribution of the gifts. He planned it so we all fit together in a way that each person’s contribution matters.

How are you responding to build up God’s Kingdom here in St. Joseph parish?  What ministry are you involved in?

Our mission statement says that “We are a community of faith…. that reaches out to all God’s children”.    We are fortunate to have so many ministries and volunteers responding to people’s needs. However there are still many ministries and volunteers needed  e.g.  Respect Life Ministry - Marriage Preparation -  Singles Group -  Young Adults - Youth Ministry -  Divorced and Separated Support -  Prayer Ministry in Hospice and Nursing Homes -  Church Greeters -  Ushers -  Men’s Group/Club, Welcome Ministry for New Parishioners -  Annulments Advocates - Parish School of Religion Catechists and Assistants - Social Justice and Marriage Rehearsal Team – Office Volunteers - Adult Daily Mass Servers - Adult Funeral Mass Servers - Altar Server Training - Hospitality Team.

If you are interested in participating or leading one of these ministries or have a recommendation for another ministry, please contact me to help discern as to where your gifts could best be used.

Thank you for your willingness to serve.                                                                                               

 Fr. Noel
