Welcome to Our Lady of Lourdes!
of Time & Talent
You will find that Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church is a community of faithful people who strive to serve Jesus by being good stewards of their gifts. Every person has something to share to build up the body of Christ, the Church. I hope you are also willing to serve God and our neighbor through sharing your gifts!
All that we have is a gift from God. When we recognize our life and everything around us is a gift from God, that realization propels us to be thankful. This sense of gratefulness empowers us to share with others, our neighbors. We are called to build up the kingdom of God by sharing our gifts; we often refer to this as stewardship. As stewards of God’s gifts we are called to share our time, our talent, and our treasure. If we live up to the commandments, and the greatest of these is to serve God and neighbor, our mission is clear.
This booklet has been prepared to help you know about the various ministries in our parish. I hope it will help you choose how you will share your time, talent, treasure to build up our community, the church, the kingdom of God. I would ask that you prayerfully consider where God is calling you to participate in the parish.
Again, welcome to Our Lady of Lourdes parish! Let us serve God and one another as we take ownership of our faith. We need you and all of our members to be as active as God calls us to be. Help us fulfill the mission of Jesus and the mission of our church, to make the living Christ visible by sharing our faith with all.
May God bless you and lead you to fulfilling your vocation and ministry in the church! I look forward to working with you and all of our parishioners as God’s stewards!
May the peace of Christ be with you!
Fr. Jason K. Crossen
