At Baptism we are welcomed into the inner life and the outer activity of the Trinity.
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit we love one another and enter fully into the lives of each other.
In the name of the Father, the Creator, we protect and enhance all of creation, leaving everything and everyone better than we found them.
In the name of the Son, the Redeemer, we use our every God-given ability and our every God-given situation to lift up and rescue everything and everyone from any distress and despair.
In the name of the Holy Spirit, the Sanctifier, we live life with serenity, courage and wisdom, and live among everyone as people of gratitude, hope and joy.
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, in the name of the Creator, Redeemer and Sanctifier, everything that we are and everything that we do is spent for the good of others and the glory of God, for the sanctification of the world and the salvation of souls.
When it comes to ministry in the Catholic Church, there are no “volunteers”. Being involved in the work of the Church is not optional. When we were baptized, we became “co-workers” with God. Being baptized, it is our duty to work with God in creating, redeeming and sanctifying the world. We have been given a mission!
St. Andrew Parish Ministry Fare takes place in the church (basement) hall after all the Sunday Masses on the weekend of January 18-19, 2014.
