Consider for a moment how far we have come in just a few short years. The countless number of people who have worshipped and celebrated the sacraments with us is amazing!
If you can, try to imagine the thousands of hours offered by members of our parish family to help design and build our church, welcome newcomers, proclaim the Scriptures, teach, assist the Mass, visit the sick, and who offer their prayers daily for needs of others! Consider the tremendous amount of time and energy spent reaching out to those in need through our monthly Gabriel's Gifts Food Bins and other Christian service ministries. And then there are the "behind the scenes" folks who care for our facilities inside and out, help with the day-to-day business, and those who always find a way to contribute when there is a need.
All of these things are accomplished through a true love of our community, nourished through prayer and a willingness to allow the gifts of the Holy Spirit to work through us. Without such a spirituality we would be unable to spread the Gospel and be true witnesses of the Gospel as we are.
