With His death and resurrection Jesus established His Church – His community of believers. The disciples go through the world preaching, teaching, forgiving sins, performing miracles, baptizing the faithful, and offering them the Mass and the Holy Eucharist. Participation in the Mass and receiving the Eucharist is the ultimate act of the community of God. Today, our Church gives us many opportunities to join with fellow Catholics in religious and social activities. We should consider taking an active role in the Church as lectors, choir members, participants in adoration, prayer services, programs for the elderly and youth. Only through participation can we feel the bond of family with other parishioners.
Consider your talents and step-up to fill your role in the family!
Try to attend Mass and receive communion on a weekday during each week of Lent.
