Called – to – Serve
Social Concerns Ministry
Stewardship starts in the heart and the home. When it flourishes, it spreads to the parish, the community and the world. Nurturing this endeavor already takes place in many aspects at St Therese... by assisting with communication and engaging parishioners, Called-to-Serve supports current charity efforts at St Therese and will assist in incorporating and developing additional efforts where needed. Called-to-Serve is not a group you need to “join”…it is you and me, Christians, focusing and answering our call at Baptism, of Social Ministry - to foster (in ourselves and others) spirituality, virtues, and works of mercy, as well as learn and practice Catholic disciplines and teachings on the welfare and justice for our fellow man.
