SLRP Holds Ministry Renewal Formation
Oct 17 - With the new liturgical year just a little over a month away, Fr. Luke and the leadership of PPC, began its annual renewal formation for its different ministries and organization. Beginning with the Worship Ministry, composed of the Ministry of Altar Servers, Ministry of the Word, Extra-ordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, Mother Butler Guild, Apostleship of Prayer and the Music Ministry, the members attended a three-hour formation and talk by our parish priest with the theme "God Loves a Cheerful Giver".
The talk covered two topics: (1) The Gift of Self and (2) The Spirituality of Communion. The first part focused on the individual - his identity as a person with physical, emotional and spiritual makeup; his motivation for serving, and his commitment to serve by giving wholeheartedly of oneself. The second part focused on the church, the communion of all its members in a life led by the Spirit, and the basic elements of our Christian belief - the mystery of the Blessed Trinity and the mystery of the Mystical Body of Christ.
