I volunteer as a catechist because I enjoy interacting with children. They inspire and challenge me in my faith journey.
I feel called by Jesus to serve my family, my parish, and my community. By nourishing, by giving of my time or talents, or sometimes just lending an attentive ear. Trying to follow Jesus' many examples of service is the way I want to live.
I serve because working together we build the future of our Catholic community. It strengthens my faith and I reap the benefits of a life well lived through serving others. Simply put - I love my faith, my community and my church.
