Greetings St. Thomas the Apostle Community,
Last weekend, we celebrated the Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord. This day is most notable for the story of the Three Kings following the star to the baby Jesus and presenting their gifts to him. And while most of us would not gift Gold, Frankincense or Myrrh in this day and age, we can still give Christ the greatest gift — ourselves.
There are various liturgical ministries that are essential to St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church being the welcoming, vibrant parish community that it is. We need friendly and helpful people to serve as Host-Greeters. We need poised and reflective people to serve as Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion. We need organized and detailed people to serve as Sacristans. We need tidy and flexible people to serve as Temple Keepers. No matter your God given gifts, there is a ministry in which you can give yourself.
Please take time in prayer and discern where God may be calling you to share your gifts. As a child of God, you are the face of Christ. As a parishioner of St. Thomas the Apostle, you are the face of this community. We need you.
For more information about ministry opportunities, please contact the Liturgy and Music Office or visit the St. Thomas website. Make the Year of Our Lord 2020 the year in which you discover a new way in which you can share your gifts for the building of God’s reign.
