Everyone’s time is limited, so giving up your time for something “new” can be a real sacrifice. It can be overwhelming sometimes just to find time to be with those you care for most. to be a good steward of time, though, requires you to decide what is important and make time for your priorities.
God calls us to make time each day to worship Him which can include participation in Mass or Devotionals. Praying on a regular basis can help give you a greater sense of peace, a fuller appreciation for the gift of life, and a greater sense of gratitude for all that we have. Prayer is also vital to strengthen your relationship with the Lord. And, prayers are answered – you will see results.
Finding time for your parish life is also a way of thanking God for his gifts as well. Our parish is God’s community, and he provides for his community by working through us. We hope you can take some additional time to consider the many activities and ministries available at St. Ann’s. Participation is a use of your time that can enhance your life as well as the community of Christ.
