OUR GREATEST GIFTS TO GOD
Life is Your gift to me.
Through Baptism, You invite me to share the gift of my life
In service to others.
Be with me as I choose each day
To show Your Presence in our world.
Give me the courage and generosity
To respond to Your Love, to Your call.
I pray especially for those who serve You in ministry
throughout the parish of St. Maximilian Kolbe.
May we bring the Good News to those in need.
Keep us close to You.
Open the minds and hearts of many others
Men, women, and young people
That they may accept Your challenge
To build the Kingdom in our parish.
We ask this prayer through Christ our Lord.
Requesting your Time and Talent. Please read the ministry descriptions and choose where you would like to share your time and talent.
