Opportunities to Serve
The opportunity of doing great things does not come very often, but at every moment, we can do little acts with great love. - St. Francis DeSalesAs followers of Christ, we are each called through our Baptism to serve our sisters and brothers in our parish, our community, our country, and the world. Below are some of the ways in which OLGC reaches out and through which you can fulfill this baptismal call. We believe that God has given every person gifts for bringing about the Reign of God: our natural-born strengths and talents, the skills and abilities that we’ve developed over time, the desire to do something meaningful with our lives. As members of the Body of Christ, we need each other so that we, the Church, might be the difference in the world that God has called us to be.
It is our hope that every parishioner is given the opportunity to discover and develop his/her God-given gifts.
