In Holy Redeemer Parish we encourage and welcome active participation from all parishioners. This is your parish, you belong here and your role is significant to its life and survival. We encourage all, young and old to actively participate in the liturgies and upkeep of the Church.
You can take part in any number of ministries which we have on offer. Become more involved by saying yes and signing up for at least one ministry. You have many gifts and talents which God has given to you, so don’t be shy and share them with your parish. Like colours of the rainbow each Ministry adds light, life and beauty to our Church.
We provide training and information for all ministries, so don’t think you won’t know what to do as we will help you along the way. It’s great to be part of a team and ministry is an excellent way to participate as a member of a team and provide an essential service to your faith community. Remember we are all called to serve not to be served.
Each ministry has its own unique gifts and characteristics; each ministry challenges us in a different way. It’s not easy for some people to be in the public eye but the challenge brings with it its own rewards and graces.
There are many ministries which you may consider joining, Eucharistic Minister, Reader, Altar Server, Altar Society, Music Ministry and choir, dues Collectors, distributors, Legion of Mary to name but a few. Remember that no ministry is greater or above another, all are parts working together in harmony. Be brave and say Yes! Simply contact the parish office or any of the priests and let us do the rest.
Let me finish with a prayer from St. Teresa of Avila
“Christ has no body now, but yours. No hands, no feet on earth, but yours.
