And the king will say to them in reply,
‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’
~ Matthew 25:40
I GOT TIME! is our acronym for Individuals Giving Of Time and Talent In Missionary Experiences
Life often gets busy. Looking beyond our daily family and work commitments can be difficult. Yet – we are STILL CALLED by our faith to serve one another!
The I GOT TIME! program at Saint Patrick Parish will provide families and individuals with easy and fun opportunities to make sure that service to others can still find a place in our hearts and hands. Each event will be organized by the I GOT TIME! event coordinators. All details will be pre-arranged… SIGN UP and SHOW UP!
A different event will be scheduled each month, all will be family friendly. Our hope is that volunteering can be made easy and simple enough that families and individuals are attracted to participate. We hope to build new relationships between parishioners and form greater bonds within our parish. Bonds that are outward reaching and positive for all involved.
Our parish vision calls us to “open the minds and hearts of all the people at Saint Patrick Parish, that we may JOYFULLY accept God’s call to live as stewards of His abundant gifts.”
