CALLING ALL MEMBERS OF CORPUS CHRISTI
Help make a difference in our faith family!
Dear People of God,
In the movie “Field of Dreams” the main character, played by Kevin Costner, builds a baseball field on his farm KNOWING that if he “builds it, they (baseball players from the past) will come.” He does and they do…. it is a movie that reminds me very much of Corpus Christi.
Ever since becoming your pastor, one of my continual prayers – to the Lord – has been to bring people to our wonderful faith family. My version of, “If you build it, they will come.” That prayer has been answered in so many ways.
I come to you today because we have a wonderful challenge set before us.
Our F.I.S.H. (Faith Initiative Starts at Home) Children’s Faith Formation program grades K – 5 is literally busting at the seams. Currently there are at least 2 classes for each grade level. This is almost double from last year. Right now, we have no choice but to place children on a waiting list.
WE BUILT IT AND THEY CAME.
I believe the Lord has set a challenge before us – one that I know we can meet as a faith family.
Won’t you help me meet the challenge?
HELP US NOT TO HAVE TO TURN CHILDREN AND FAMILIES AWAY!
Are you looking for a way to share your faith, time and talents with others? Have you been waiting for the Lord to nudge you? Well, this is it folks! Here’s the nudge…..The Children’s Faith Formation Department needs you….today…right now!
Volunteers – both adults and teens – are needed as catechists (teachers), catechist aides, sacramental preparation, intergenerational event support, office and resource support.
What you DO need:
A love of our faith and a desire to share it with our young people.
What you DON’T need:
You don’t have to have a child in our program to volunteer.
You don’t need to be an expert of our faith.
What we PROMISE you:
We will train and support you every step of the way.
For example: We have child care for the younger siblings of teachers and aides.
I know we can meet this challenge the Lord has placed before us! I am asking you to prayerfully consider joining this ministry today.
For more information or to volunteer, contact Maria Inciong our Coordinator of Children’s Faith Formation at 949.389.9209 or email her at: firstname.lastname@example.org
It is my blessing to be your Pastor.
Fr. Tim Ramaekers
