Lifetime spiritual growth

Please consider the following topics to be addressed in our archdiocese: For young adults, invite them to be eucharistic ministers and lectors, as they need to be involved in our parish community; involve them in projects such as working with the poor at St. Vincent de Paul and other ministries so they will believe they are doing worthwhile work for themselves and the church; encourage them to join choirs.

Invite girls to be altar servers. Eliminating girls will discourage them from possibly becoming sisters. As you know, the numbers of sisters are dwindling. We need sisters also, not just priests.

After parents baptize their children, form groups for them to discuss issues of parenting and child rearing, keeping them involved in church activities.

We need to attract children, young adults, and young parents with tasks for spiritual growth in their lives as Catholics. We need to challenge and motivate them.
