The Call to Ministry: Ministry Fair
The heart of any parish is worship and from that worship stems ministry. Our partaking of the weekly – and daily – Eucharist prepares us to go into the world and serve God’s children. It also calls us to live in community with others.
Here at Our Lady of the Assumption it calls us to create a community that is always
reaching to grow spiritually, to serve the less fortunate, and to grow in love and fellowship with one another.
At our baptism we are anointed Priest, Prophet, and King.
We are Priest through worship – when we acknowledge the saving presence of God in our lives, offer sacrifice, and acknowledge the many gifts that He has given to us.
We are Prophet when we are educated in our faith and then proclaim it to others.
We are King when we lead and serve God’s people.
Our parish is blessed in that we have over 70 ministries that allow us to serve others or to be served in times of need. We have ministries that form our faith or bring us together in joyful, communal celebration! There truly is something for everyone – every age, every talent level, every time commitment availability.
We are called to serve.
We are called to participate.
On the weekend of September 11 and 12 we will be hosting our annual Ministry Fair after all Masses. Last year COVID-19 put a halt to most of our ministries. We are excited to see ministry meetings and events back on campus this year and hope that you will jump right in!
Please join us in front of the church to talk to some of our ministry leaders, learn more about our ministries, and hear of our urgent ministry needs. We will have five tables representing our 5 categories of ministry:
· Worship Ministries,
· Religious Education and Faith Formation Ministries,
· Spiritual Life Ministries,
· Christian Outreach Ministries, and
· Parish Life Ministries.
To learn more about our ministries prior to the weekend, please go to www.olachurch.org/get-involved.
If you have questions about a ministry, please contact the ministry leader (contact info is on the website) or Ministry Commission Chair, Ashlyn Gioia, at email@example.com.
