On Going Ministries
Ministry is work! It is not just sitting around all day, reading your Bible and saying prayers. That is really a great thing to do, and sometimes that's all we can do. But Physical Ministry is a job that takes lots of work!
When performing a Ministry, you must get out and talk to people, work with people, and try to help them in some small way. When you minister to others and help out in the communities, you feed your own spirit as well as those in need.
There are two current Ministries at our churches in Illinois, Immaculate Conception Church in Fulton and St. Patrick Church in Albany. These Ministries combine both prayer and service to our communities:
- St. Vincent de Paul Society
- Divine Mercy & Rosary Mondays
If you need help from one of these Ministries, if you would like to join one, or if you have any ideas for a new Ministry, please contact the Parish Office in Fulton at 815-589-3542. Your help and support, in any way is always greatly appreciated.
Christ chose some of us to be apostles, prophets, missionaries, pastors, and teachers, so that his people would learn to serve and his body would grow strong. This will continue until we are united by our faith and by our understanding of the Son of God. Then we will be mature, just as Christ is, and we will be completely like him. Ephesians 4: 11-13 (CEV)
