"Who is a Christian Steward? One who receives God's gifts gratefully, cherishes and tends them in a responsible manner, shares them in justice and love with others, and returns them with increase to the Lord."
~ From the U.S. Bishops' Pastoral Letter on Stewardship
Every week, St. Monica Parish is buzzing with activity! There are groups that pray together, that minister to other parishioners, and groups that reach out to the community. Part of being an active member of our parish is to find your niche - the ministry where your personal talents can best be put to use. This is what St. Peter meant when he wrote, "As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's varied grace." (1Peter 4:10)
Action Steps to Increase Your Involvement:
Recommit yourself to your current parish ministries;
Choose at least one new ministry to join;
Plan to attend parish-wide events announced in our bulletin and on this website.
"It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name He may give you. This I command you: love one another." (John 15:16-17)
