Lay Ministry Sunday

On Sunday, March 6, our diocese will commemorate Lay Ministry Sunday which gives us an opportunity to affirm and publically acknowledge the service that the laity contribute to the life of the Church both in parishes and the diocese-at-large.
As a pastor of St. Stanislaus Kostka I am very grateful for the dedication of those who work as leaders of our parish ministry, members of a parish committee, liturgical ministers, and those in outreach in many ways.
May God bless you for your efforts, skill, talents and times to serve our parish.
