ParishSt. Andrew

Service Involvement:

Many St. Andrew Parish services including SACRED (St. Andrew Children’s Recreation, Education Days), 8th Grade Passion Play, Athletic Support, Viking Magic Coach, Alter Server, Kindergarten Lunch Helper, YMCA food service through Confirmation Service, Knights of Columbus Egg Hunt, and attended CYSC with my Parish Friends.

What does service mean to you? How does your involvement in your parish and community foster a stronger relationship with Jesus?

Service means to me – GIVING of me and my talents to praise God! I love to share all the good gifts God has given to me with others.

My involvement with my parish and community foster a stronger relationship with Jesus because Jesus is in everyone I work with and touch through the service I provide.  I especially enjoy being an example of Jesus for the little children as Jesus loved the little ones, so do I. I watch how happy the little kids were with helping at lunches, opening Easter Eggs, teaching them Viking Magic basketball skills, etc..   I love Jesus and enjoy serving Him as an Altar Server.

To be a Messenger of Christ is to bring the WORD of God and His Love to all people. I am a person who carries a message of God’s Love. My favorite quote is one that I have memorized from my religion class and say every morning to remind myself of God’s Love, “For God so loved the world, he gave his only begotten Son so that whoever believes in him, shall not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:16) Jesus is the best example of service that we can follow and the best messenger of God’s goal for us.

As the Diocese of Columbus reorients itself towards evangelization, the Diocese is beginning to invest more time and resources into a diocesan-wide social media presence.  As this is now beginning to grow, the Vocations Office will no longer need to carry the message in social media as the Vocations Office.  The new Social Media Department of the Diocese will have the mission of spreading the Gospel through social media and will be the avenue by which the Vocations Office works to promote a culture of vocations.  As the Vocations Office we will still continue our information website, www.seekholiness.com.  This site will be going through an exciting transformation over the next several months as the Diocese moves to a new platform.  We will also begin running our vocations-oriented messages, event announcements, and news through the diocesan social media platform.  Because of this, Face Forward’s time will be coming to a close at the end of this month.  We thank all of those who have been a part of this important work in the life of the local Church. We look forward with excitement to the spread of the Gospel and the cultivation of a culture of vocations as we enter this new phase in the life of the Diocese of Columbus.  Please continue to follow along with us through our seekholiness.com site and through the Diocese of Columbus Social Media platform.
