Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you."

~John 20:21

Ignited for Service is our invitation to the MSW community to use your talents and serve others. Please spend time reviewing the calendar of service opportunities and prayerfully consider how you can help.

As the Church celebrated Pentecost Sunday, MSW announced our Ignited for Service initiative. Pentecost raises our awareness that, by virtue of our baptism, all of us have been sent into the world to continue restoring community in the name of Jesus wherever we encounter brokenness of any kind in our world. Ignited for Service is our invitation to the MSW community to use your talents and serve others.

Over 65 service opportunities were generated and organized by members of our pastoral council, ministry heads and pastoral staff. We are grateful for their enthusiasm and dedication to bringing this effort to life. The initial response to our call to action was strong, with over 200 parishioners signing-up to participate in these various service projects.

If you haven’t completed the Ignited for Service response form, it’s not too late! Our service opportunities are ongoing and we hope you will prayerfully considering how you can help. You can review these opportunities by visiting the parish website or keep an eye out for upcoming projects in the weekly bulletin and Saturday eblast. Can you give an hour? A day? Or any amount of time in-between?
