Just prior to Advent, you heard Fr. Sirico speak in his homilies about the future of our parish. One of the themes of Father’s homilies is creating a community that can be relied upon to assist with the work of our various apostolates in the service of the Body of Christ. One of the concepts father is driving at in his homilies is “there is too much work being done by too few people” and thus, the work, beautiful and worthy as it is, is not sustainable.
One of the ways our parish and academy act with charity for our neighbor is through the hospitality of welcoming guests to our athletic contests. We host both athletic events for our parish teams and other teams from the league in which our teams play. We are asking for your family’s help (whether your children or grandchildren play sports or not) sharing in the simple tasks and minimal time required for hosting games at our academy gym. If you can serve, please call the academy office or 616.459.0948 or email our Athletic Director, Phil May: email@example.com.
