You need JavaScript enabled to view it., member of the St Margaret Mary Adult Faith Formation Committee, has volunteered to be our parish Service Opportunity Coordinator. She will love to connect you with volunteer opportunities throughout the year and for any other projects or needs of the parish and its groups or ministries.

Here are some areas she’s exploring:

  • Getting ready for winter: helping the parish and our neighbors with winterizing. Could involve raking, planting, weatherizing, whatever is needed.
  • Game Night: to help the refugee families our parish has sponsored meet other parishioners.
  • Helping a local shelter: serving a meal, clean-up, reading to kids at the shelter, whatever is needed.

Sheila will be posting opportunities in the Bulletin and on the parish website, but PLEASE CONTACT HER with any good ideas you have as well! This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Adult faith formation provides a number of processes through which people may consciously grow in the life of Christ through experience, reflection, prayer and study. This must be the central task of the catechetical enterprise “becoming the axis around which revolves the catechesis of childhood and adolescence as well as that of old age”. (General Directory for Catechesis, #275)

“Every disciple of the Lord shares in his mission. … To grow in discipleship throughout life, all believers need and are called to build vibrant parish and diocesan communities of faith and service…. Pope John Paul II …envision[s] a laity who are living witnesses to Christ: well-formed in faith, enthusiastic, capable of leadership in the Church and in society, filled with compassion, and working for justice.” (Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us, USCCB, 1999, pp. pp.1-2, 11)
