Our Ministries

"As Christian stewards, we receive God's gifts gratefully, cultivate them responsibly,

share them lovingly in justice with others, and return them with increase to the Lord."

​- United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

The Call to Ministry

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.

Worship Ministries

OLA’s Worship Ministries offer our parishioners opportunities to gather in prayer, to serve our liturgies behind-the-scenes, and to assist in the action of the liturgies. 

 

Through their gifts and talents ministry stewards ensure that our liturgical celebrations are truly life-giving expressions of our faith. 

Our Worship Ministries are always looking for volunteers - and for new members to join us in prayer.
