Through the grace of the Holy Spirit, we all have been given gifts. All of us. We all have something the Lord has given to us that we are called to share with others. Come forward and share. We’ve been waiting for you.

 

Called and Gifted Workshop

God is calling you to a unique purpose in life, a work of love that only you can do. Discern your spiritual gifts! Discern your call! What is your vocation? Come and begin to discover this work! You have received gifts, through Baptism and Confirmation, for the way God intends his love to reach others through you. Come and discover these gifts! Presented periodically, the Called & Gifted Workshop is a two-day live presentation which will include Church teaching on the laity and lay apostleship; the nature of spiritual gifts, call and vocation; and how to undertake the process of discernment.

Music Ministry

The whole congregation exercises a ministry of music - we are all called to raise our voices in songs of praise. However, certain members of our community have a special gift of leading musical praise. Any pastoral musician is first above all a faithful disciple of Christ and then a minister second. A pastoral musician is a worshiper using musical talent; a believer who shares faith by serving the community and loving God through music. Music is present because of its ability to add a dimension of meaning, depth and feeling to our worship. Come and share the gift of your voice and grow in the beauty of music.

Ministers of the Word (Readers)

The Church presents a great gift to us in the Liturgy of the Word. When the Sacred Scriptures are read in the Church, God himself speaks to his people. In the readings, the table of God’s Word is spread before the faithful, and the treasures of the Bible are opened for us. Should you feel the call to share with the congregation your gift of public speaking, there can be no higher calling than proclaiming God’s word to God’s people. And in your sharing of this gift, you have the opportunity to assist our parishioners and feel the humbleness, focus and clarity of heart that grows within you. Come and share your gift with us and allow the beauty of the word of God to grow in us all. Contact Barbara Morgan (English), 828-808-4069 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
