Ministry

As part of God's family, we have all been given special and unique gifts.  Everything we are and everything we have has been freely given to us by our generous God.  As baptized Christians and stewards of God's gifts, we have a responsibility to use and share our special gifts out of love and gratitude in all aspects of our daily lives-at home, at work, in our community and in our parish.  Parish ministry is one way we can continue the mission and ministry of Jesus Christ and help bring about God's kingdom.

Here are just some of the Ministry opportunities here at Saint Rosalie's!  Click a category for specific ministries and details.  (Additions to this page will be ongoing.)

Good deeds, whether in the parish or elsewhere, are considered ministry if the motivation is love and gratitude to God for all we have received.  We give praise and glory to God each time we use our gifts for the common good.  We are truly the hands and heart of Christ in today's world.  St. Teresa of Avila's words of the 16th century continue to be timely.  Let us pray:

Christ has no body now but yours.
No hands, no feet, on earth but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which He looks
compassion on this world.
Yours are the feet
with which He walks to do good.

Yours are the hands
with which He blesses all the world.
Yours are the hands, yours are the feet.
Yours are the eyes, you are His body.

Christ has no body now but yours.
No hands, no feet on earth but yours.
Yours are the eyes, through which He looks
compassion on this world.

Christ has no body now on earth but yours.
These are the words of St. Theresa of
Avila written in the 16th century.


Make St. Teresa's words your own now by praying a second time substituting the words “I” and “mine” instead of “you” and “yours.”  Pray and reflect on how God is calling you to share your own gifts through ministry.

Monday: God Started it All!

On Monday we looked at the wonders of the EARTH!

We made flower pots, planted seeds and ate "cups of dirt" that we made ourselves. 

Tuesday: Twirlin' and Breezy!

On Tuesday we took a look at God's gift of WIND!

We made windsocks, experienced wind in parachutes and made wind-blown cotton candy.

Wednesday: Wacky-Under the Sea!

Wednesday we packed everything up and headed to ATLANTIS MARINE WORLD in Riverhead and explored the wonders of God's gift of WATER!
We saw sharks, touched Manta Rays and held sea stars and other wonderful creations of God!
Thursday: It's Too Hot!

Thursday were set on fire with God's love!  We looked at the gift of LIGHT and FIRE by making candle bookmarks and sun-catchers.
We then celebrated that
we are the light of the world! 
Friday: Fun and Frolic!

On Friday we celebrated that God holds the whole world in His hands.  It was too hot to go out, so we picnicked indoors, finished our giant banner and shared with our families the songs and dance we learned throughout the week!
