Stewardship of Talent

Serve One Another – John 13:15

Every week, Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary is buzzing with activity. There are groups that pray together, groups that minister to other parishioners, and groups that reach out to the community. We have dozens of ministries to choose from! Part of being an active member of our parish is to find your niche – the ministry where your personal talents can best be put to use. This is what St. Peter meant when he wrote, “As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” (1 Peter 4:10)


Action Steps to Increase Your Involvement

  • Re-commit yourself to your current parish ministries
  • Choose at least one new ministry to join
  • Train your children to serve in the Church
  • Plan to attend parish-wide events announced in our bulletin

“There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the
same Spirit; there are different forms of service, but the same Lord; there are different workings, but the same God who produces all of them in everyone. To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit is given for some benefit.” ~ 1 Corinthians 12:4-7
