YOUR VOLUNTEER HOURS!
Spirit of Christ Catholic Community will celebrate our 40th Anniversary in July, 2014 – 40 YEARS! In our Stewardship DVD this year, we talked about your commitment to time, talent and treasure. This was a founding charism of our parish and WE OWN OUR LEGACY. Spirit of Christ parishioners are the best of the best volunteers!
We want to know how many hours a month you volunteer and what you do for whom in those hours. We hope to hear your stories. We have set up a Wiki Account for you to send your information. On the front page of the web site we will have a “thermometer”, where we will tally the information each month and move the gauge up each week. In July we will show how many hours we have LIVED THE GOSPEL – making a difference in others’ lives each and every day. The wiki address is:
Every Sat., 9 a.m. - Respect for Life Rosary
