“He came, not to receive service, but to give it.”   Matthew 20:28

Catechetical Sunday

Ministry is from the Greek word diakoneo, meaning “to serve” or to “serve as a slave.” Ministry is meeting people where they are and journeying with them to where God wants them to be. Christians are to minister to others out of their devotion to Christ and their love for others. Ministers yield to the work of the Spirit and listen to God’s desires for the life of the person with whom they are journeying. The process of helping people journey from their current place (here) to where God desires them to be (there) is the role of every minister. And this process is called discipleship.  Ministers disciple people.

I would like to express my appreciation to all those St. Stephen “Disciples” who help others on their journey by their ministry in Adult Faith Formation, Bible Study, Children’s Liturgy of the Word, Children’s Faith Formation and Sacramental Prep, Youth Confirmation and Baptism Prep programs. God has called you and you have answered with humility and devotion.
