Engagement

We offer many opportunities for everyone in your family to get involved in our parish while serving God. We do not think ourselves into new ways of living, we live ourselves into new ways of thinking.

Opportunities to Give

We all know that the spiritual benefits of giving far outweigh the costs. We all have either time, talent or treasure that God wants us to share. Our paths are shaped by how we share these gifts.

Here are the different ways to give.

Marietta Jaeger on Forgiveness

Marrieta’s story will stretch your imagination to its boundaries of pain and suffering. She’s traveled the world for the past 40 years, speaking to audiences about the importance of developing our ability to forgive.

She spent ten years speaking at a rehabilitation facility for clergy. She’s been interviewed in Rome by the Vatican Radio three times, and testified to the United Nations Human Rights Commission in Geneva, Switzerland.

“I went to Nicaragua to find out what was really going on with the campesinos,” Marietta shares. “How were they able to maintain a spirit of forgiveness during a period of daily occupation? This was an occupation of violence. Life was being taken every day.”

A good Parish should inspire you all week long. 

“The most amazing fact about Jesus, unlike almost any other religious founder, is that he found God in disorder and imperfection—and told us that we must do the same or we would never be content on this earth.”

My friends, we are living in crazy times. All you need to do is turn on the television or visit any news blog to see it unfold before our eyes. Our task is to increase our spiritual capacity despite it all. We do this by having a closer relationship with God, and with our neighbors.

This Parish is a parish of inclusion and vitality. I invite you to listen to our podcasts, join our ministries and get involved. We need to stay strong in these volatile times. My prayer for you is that you lead happy and fulfilled lives. We can ONLY do this by walking in His footsteps. Sin happens when we stop growing spiritually, so walk with us here at St. John XXIII.

It’s great to have you.

-Father Bob Tabbert
