Volunteer Appreciation

02-03-2019Weekly ReflectionFr. David Poecking

Sunday offerings are not the only gift that fuels the mission of the Church, though of course these are gratefully received and used to the best of our abilities. But volunteers are also essential to the life of the parish. At Sunday Mass, most of the people who make it happen are volunteer altar servers (and parents!), choristers, Communion ministers, readers, sacristans, ushers, and more. Volunteers also drive our social outreach and most of our catechetical programs. Still others assist me and the other clergy in the governance of the parishes.
