A Few Words About Ministry

In the book, Modern Catholic Dictionary written by John A. Hardon, S.J., Fr. Hardon defines ministry as “authorized service of God in the service of others, according to specified norms revealed by Christ and determined by the Church.”

The aim of ministry is building up the Body of Christ and the power of ministry is God’s grace. Below are the listings of ministries that our parishoneers are carrying out with and for Christ Jesus.
