We Are Called to Serve

We are all called to serve in building up God’s kingdom on Earth using our different gifts in different forms of service. With the Long Range Planning efforts, those forms of service were divided into primary categories based on St. John Vianney Parish’s Goals (Parishioners were provided copies of the Executive Summary of the Long Range Plan in May or you click here for the entire Plan). Over the next seven weeks a series of articles will appear in the bulletin describing the top priority action plans for each category.

Facilities and Infrastructure: take care of our parish “home”

Outreach and Service: welcome all and be engaged in service

Faith Formation: live, learn, and share the Scriptures and Catholic Tradition

Finance: create financial stability

Liturgy and Spirituality: seeking an understanding of God’s love for us and expressing our love for God

Staffing and Leadership Development: develop talents and leadership in staff, ministry leaders, and parishioners

Communications: improve communication with parishioners, ministries, and visitors

 

Special Extraordinary Ministers Meeting

Attention all Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist (EME”s), and to all those interested in becoming an EME. There will be a meeting of all EME’s on Tuesday, September 9th at 7:00pm in the church. As stated in the handbook for EME’s “We, as EME’s, are invited to assist our faith community in celebrating the Mass which is the “source and summit” of our lives as Roman Catholic Christians.” In order to perform the duties consistently with the appropriate number of ministers and following the instructions in the handbook it is necessary to review the ground rules on a periodic basis.

 We are expecting ALL EME’s to attend this meeting. If you are unable to attend Tuesdays meeting, there will be a makeup session on Saturday, September 13th at 9:15am after the 8:30am Mass.

Parish Mission



September 21st, 22nd and 23rd

All are welcome! More information to follow! Do not miss this wonderful opportunity! For more information on our speakers see their website: www.thefiveloaves.com

From Here to Holiness is a Parish Mission inviting us to discover the holiness already within us, our inheritance as children of God. Using scripture, storytelling, music and process, we recognize the ways we encounter Christ in our daily lives. From the moment of our birth we are called into relationship with one another, and therefore, into relationship with God. Tom and Kimi Tomaszek present the parish mission, drawing from their life stories, and Tom’s theological training and forty years of ministerial experience. As a Catholic married couple and now partners in ministry, they offer an engaging, practical, inspiring witness of faith in action
