“Jesus makes Charity the New Commandment”.

CCC (Catechism of the Catholic Church)A minister of hospitality at coffee and donuts

Charity is the third of the theological virtues to which all Christians are called.  While on earth, Jesus spoke of our responsibility to love God and our neighbor.  He went so far as to explain that our neighbor could be any one, even an enemy.   Here in the parishes of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary and St. Leo, a number of organizations operate who serve God by serving their fellow human beings.

Many of our modern-day saints such as Mother Theresa and St. Andre Bessette personified what it meant to live for the other.  As Catholics, we believe that our service to God need not be in great things, but as St. Therese of Lisieux writes in her autobiography, Story of a Soul, it is to “do small things with great love.”

God calls us to our particular vocation of love.  Whether a person is called to serve as a Healing Prayer minister, Mercy Circle minister, or Catechist is not important.  What is important is that one responds to God’s call to serve these “little ones” with a resounding “yes”!

Not sure of your gifts?

Sometimes the hardest thing is to know just where God is calling.  If this is the case with you, take some time to prayerfully review the many ministries offered here.  Then, contact the pastoral minister or priest and make an appointment to discuss your call to action.  Even if you are confined to your home, there are ways to serve, such as a Mercy Circle co-captain or even as a prayer warrior interceding for others through Our Lady’s Partners in Prayer.  There is no gift of self too small, nor love too large. All of our ministries offer ways to grow in the “Life in Christ” CCC.
