Service is a running theme throughout the Gospels. Christ served those around Him - feeding the multitudes, healing the sick, and even turning water into wine at a wedding banquet. Service is at the root in living in imitation of Christ. Christ served others throughout His life on Earth and his death on the cross was the ultimate act of service. And when we serve others, we are not only following in Christ’s footsteps, but serving Christ Himself.
We encourage all in our parish community to live out their faith by learning about the principles of Catholic Social Teaching, reaching out generously to those in need, and advocating for a fair and just society.
