One of the central themes of the Christmas season is that despite a difficult situation and environment, many came together to welcome the baby Jesus. Each came with whatever gifts they had– the innkeeper offering his lowly stable, Mary and Joseph’s preparation of a crib, the animals providing warmth, the shepherds’ words of welcome and the wise men with their rare offerings.
Our celebration of the Festival of Gifts this weekend is the perfect time to acknowledge the many ways that CCC parishioners have shared their gifts of time, labor and prayers to help create a better life for our brothers and sisters in need.
In addition to our charitable financial grants to Community Partner organizations and projects, CCC volunteers have:
… Served The Hungry
… Helped Provide A Home
… Enriched Lives
… Created Community
While these numbers are impressive, there are literally thousands of hours that have gone into project planning, implementation and follow up. Most importantly, it’s impossible to quantify the impact they’ve had on the lives of those served. Nor can we calculate the satisfaction and fellowship of working side by side with fellow parishioners.
This coming week we will share with you our Mission & Outreach plans for 2019. We pray that even more parishioners will find it in their hearts to share the gifts that God has blessed us with and join in this work that truly helps to change people’s lives.
