Jesus reminds us that he is the vine and we are the branches, and it is the branches through which nourishment enlivens the vine, so it is with parish ministries and organizations. There are many ministries and organizations by which our parish is enriched, some require occasional participation, and others entail regular participation. Your involvement in one of these ministries or organizations will not only enrich your life, but will also vitalize our Community of Faith and empower us to be lights for God's kingdom.
