Offertory Envelopes 

We have a new envelope company, and are aware that EVERYONE received envelopes for the month of June. Starting in August, those who previously requested not to receive envelopes will not receive them.

Ministry Versus Job

Some people have a job in the Church and others are invited into a ministry.
What is the difference?
If you’re doing it just because no one else will, it’s a job.
If you’re doing it to serve the Lord, it’s a ministry.
If you quit because someone criticizes you, it’s a job.
If you keep serving, it’s a ministry.
If you’ll do it as long as it doesn’t interfere with your other activities, it’s a job.
If you are committed to staying, even if it means letting go of other things, it’s a ministry.
If you quit because no one thanked you or praised you, it’s a job.
If you stick with it, even though no one recognized your efforts, it’s a ministry.
It’s hard to get excited about a job.
It’s almost impossible to NOT get excited about a ministry.
If your concern is success, it’s a job.
If your concern is faithfulness and service, it’s a ministry.
If God calls you to a ministry, don’t treat it like a job!

-       Fr. Gary Faust, pastor St. Bernadette in the Diocese of St. Louis
