Stewardship of Talent: Service
“In the building up of Christ’s Body there is engaged a diversity of members and functions. There is only one Spirit Who, according to His own richness and the needs of the ministries, gives His different gifts for the welfare of the Church.” (CCC, 791)
We are one in Christ, yet uniquely distinct. As St. Paul tells us in his letter to the Corinthians, “There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; there are different forms of service but the same Lord” .(1 Cor. 12:4-5) As one body in Christ, we are unified in our mission to build up the Kingdom of Heaven. And within our unity, we are given countless gifts and talents. Have you considered the gifts God has blessed you with? Are you using them to give Him glory?
Pray about the following possibilities:
- Get involved in a service ministry at our parish that stretches you to be more selfless.
- Pray for our ministries, our parish leaders and all parishioners, asking the Holy Spirit to guide our parish community.
- Commit to a daily extra act of service toward a family member as a concrete way to serve the Lord.
- If you remain homebound, we value and need your talents! Consider ways you can serve right from home — joining our Prayer Warriors ministry, helping with phone calls or emails for a ministry, or offering skills like sewing or baking for parish events. There are countless ways to serve God’s Kingdom.
