Dear Brothers and Sisters in Jesus,
Our parish is blessed with wonderful volunteers who offer their skills to us so that we can try to be a place of God’s light and love in the world.
During the Advent and Christmas seasons and all year long, we call on these volunteers and they always respond “above and beyond” to help our parish. These are not just the volunteers you see at Mass, as servers, as ushers, as extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion, and as choir members. There are also many, many volunteers who serve quietly and “behind the scenes” to help us in prayer and holiness.
There are also many who visit our parishioners who can’t make it to the church. At last count, over 500 people were being visited each week at home, in the hospital, and at local care facilities so that they may experience the joy and peace of Jesus. All this is being done with love and joy by our volunteers.
Saying those two words of “Thank You” to all our volunteers seems like too little for such tremendous activity. We are planning to have a volunteer appreciation event later in the year, but those plans are still being formed.
Let us all not only remember to thank our volunteers, but also to offer our prayers for them as well. They are a vital sign of God’s love to us and to the world.
May this year be a time of gratitude and joy.
