2 Being called to serve others is central to being a Chris an. It is recorded in John s Gospel that a er Jesus had washed the disciples feet he said, So if I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another s feet (Jn. 13:14). The word Ministry comes from a La n word meaning service. Every Chris an should take this instruc on of Jesus seriously. Most Catholics serve others through leadership in their family, workplace and community, and by par cipa ng in a ministry in their parish. Are you following Jesus instruc on? In what way are you being called to serve? It does not ma er if you are new to our Parish, or you have been here for a long me, there is a ministry for you. As we are invited to serve, God bestows on us the necessary gi s to fulfil our ministry.
