In Mark 16:15, Jesus says “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature.” Today, we would like to honor a group of volunteers whose work helps Family Formation parishes to do just that.
Our collating group meets each month to put together hundreds of packets and send them out to our subscribing parishes. (A few of the volunteers are pictured above.) Before that happens though, we have other people who come in each week to prepare materials and still more who take things home to complete.
What looks like measuring yarn, counting beads, cutting fabric, and all manner of other tedious jobs is really a group of generous volunteers using their time and talents to serve Christ and to make it possible for DREs, catechists, and parents down the line to talk about Jesus with their students and to do memorable activities to make those talks come to life. We are so grateful for their work, and for all the ways they participate in Family Formation’s mission to help parents be the first and best teachers of their children in the Faith.
