Our Lady of Fatima Ministries
"There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; there are different forms of service
but the same Lord; there are different workings but the same God who produces all of them in everyone."
1 Corinthians 12:4-6
Our Parish offers many different opportunities for returning our gifts of time and talent to God. As stewards of God-given skills and abilities, volunteering in a ministry or organization provides a way to thank God, share our faith with others, and enhance our community.
Comprised of clergy and laity, the purpose of the council is to assist the pastor in the ministry of the parish, to enable the parish to share in the general pastoral guidelines of the Diocese of Burlington and to promote programs and activities recommended or presented by the Diocesan Bishop.
