"As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace" (1Peter 4:10).
Our Parishes are a community of believers who share faith in Jesus Christ and a life centered on the Sacraments. As such, we are all called to share in the ministry of the Church in the measure of the gifts that God has given to us. There are many ways to become involved in the life of the Parish: from reading at Mass to helping to stock the shelves in the Parish pantries. No role is unimportant, and all are invited to participate as their lives and time allow.
If you know and love your Faith, and draw nourishment from sharing that Faith with others, maybe God is calling you to serve as a Catechist or classroom aide in our Religious Education Program. If you think this is for you, contact Celia Thomas to volunteer, at 410-282-3120.
All are called to play a role in the Liturgy. Whether it is through our active participation at Mass, or through the exercise of a Ministry such as Lector, Extraordinary Minister of Communion, Usher, Greeter, Altar Server, or Music Minister, there is a place for all around the Table of the Lord. Talk to Fr. Conklin if you are interested.
Our Faith asks us to serve others. There are many opportunities for this at Our Lady of Hope & St. Luke. If you would like to become more involved in our outreach to the poor, hungry, sick, or homebound, contact Fr. Conklin at the parish Offices.
