It was great to see so many of you visit the “Community Center” to learn more about the Dignity of Life Committee and all the ministries our parish supports. Many of you realized you are already an honorary member of the Dignity of Life Committee when you:
- lovingly wrap a Christmas gift for a child in Neopit who may have gone without
- knit baby blankets, hats and booties for new mothers who count on Love Life to supplement their baby gear
- share your garden’s bounty with fellow parishioners
- pray for the unborn
- donate food items for Pat’s Pantry
The Dignity of Life Committee spans a wide array of “subcommittees” and we are looking for people who would be willing to chair a subcommittee so we can continue to evangelize on behalf of our parish. We have a list of parishioners who want to participate in these efforts but we need leaders to lead!
Do you have a green thumb; lose your breath at the beauty of summer blooms? We need someone to chair the “Environmental Subcommittee.” In this role, you can help create a vision for our produce-sharing program, ensure that our Prayer Path stays groomed, educate our parish on Pope Francis’ Encyclical: “Our Common Home – Laudato Si,” or create a community garden, and/or develop other initiatives.
Are you interested in how Catholic parishes form, grow, and prosper in other countries? Would you be interested in helping us “twin” with a parish somewhere around the world? We need someone to chair the “Global Issues Subcommittee.”
Do you have a passion for ensuring that our senior parishioners know how much they are loved and respected? Elder services is one of the ministries supported in the “Respect Life Subcommittee” where we also need a chair.
The infrastructure is already in place for these subcommittees and as mentioned, we have parishioners who want to help– we just need people to spearhead our efforts! If you hear God calling you to get involved and would like more information on these subcommittee chair positions or just want more information about the Dignity of Life Committee overall, please contact Wendy Novak at (920) 499-6849.
Congratulations to Gabby Otto who won the Dignity of Life sponsored raffle which included a picnic basket and a membership to the Botanical Garden!
