How we serve:

In addition to working in active parish life, we serve in:

A major expression of ministry for us is being ethical people in the workplace; faithful spouses and parents; faithful partners; and caring family members and neighbors.

Ministry for us means serving others and caring for creation and our environment in an ethical and positive way.
