The word “minister” means to serve or to give. In the context of the Christian community “ministry” means to give generously for love of God. Ministry is one way we proclaim the Living Word of God. Our actions and behaviours tell others they are truly loved. In experiencing this love people know that Jesus is present among us, and that He loves them deeply and personally.

St. Leonard’s is blessed with a community of Christians who carry out the work of the Lord through their Ministries and action groups. In a parish community everyone is called out to share their God given gifts and talents with one another through Liturgy, Sacramental Life, Spiritual Growth and Community Service.
St. Leonard’s welcomes you to participate in any of its Ministries and Service Organizations. To find out how you can answer the Lord’s call, please contact our parish office or one of the individual Ministries. We hope that through these ministries St. Leonard’s may become a vibrant part of your Journey to Live Your Faith’

A job versus a ministry

Someone has said there is a huge difference between having a job at church and having a ministry at church.

… If you are doing it because no one else will, it’s a job. If you are doing it to serve the Lord, it’s a ministry.
… If you’re doing it just well enough to get by, it’s a job. If you’re doing it to the best of your ability, it’s a ministry.
… If you’ll do it only so long as it doesn’t interfere with other activities, it’s a job.

If you’re committed to staying with it even when it means letting go of other things, it’s a ministry.

… It’s hard to get excited about a job. It’s almost impossible not to get excited about a ministry.
An average church is filled with people doing jobs. A great church is filled with people involved in ministry.
