Rise

     

     Rise is a call to action following the words of Jesus found in John 14:31 and the immortal words of St. John Paul II. "Rise, Let us Be on Our Way" was not only said by this beloved pope, but also by Jesus to His disciples to encourage them to "get up" and be about the Father's work. Let's also use this as a Resurrection family, as we Rise and be about the work set before us as sons and daughters of God.

   Thank you to everyone who made the Rise Ministry Expo a success. We saw many smiles as parishioners enjoyed food and fellowship while learning about Resurrection’s ministry opportunities.

     We are grateful to the volunteers who gave their time to answer questions and explain ministries to parishioners. We owe a special thank you to Jim and Becky Johnson for providing the wonderful food for the event and to Ron and Kathy Hollander for their generous donation to help offset the costs of the Expo.

     The Ministry Expo was an important first step in our work to ignite parishioners, as we minister together on our journey of faith. Looking forward, we ask all of our parish families to return their completed Connect Cards in the collection basket at church, at the parish office, or via mail. Even if you’re not interested in any new ministries at this time, we want to assure we have your current contact information and that we correctly identify the ministries you are currently serving in.

     Families who didn’t receive a Connect Card can pick one up in the church lobby or can download a "Fillable PDF" by CLICKING HERE. This "Fillable PDF" can be completed digitally and returned via email. You will need Adobe Acrobat to complete the card digitally. If you do not have Adobe Acrobat, you can download it for free. Once you complete the card, we suggest you save it with a new file name that includes your family's name. Email the completed form to Lindsey Ziliak at [email protected].

    We ask parishioners to prayerfully consider how each of us can Rise to the task of being all the things we want our parish to be. Pray on your own, or use the Rise prayer, displayed below, which we developed as a parish community.

Resurrection is composed of people like me.
I help make it what it is.
We will be holy and prayerful, if I am.
We will do great work, if I work.
We will be generous, if I am a generous giver.
We will be a parish of love, compassion,
courage, and faith, if I am.
Our parish will grow, if I invite.
We will be the hands and feet of Christ, if I serve.
Therefore, with the help of God,
Let us Rise to the task, of being all the things
that we want our parish to be.
Bless our parish, Lord.
Let us Rise to bring your love to all we see.
Make us a place where all find peace
and are spurred onward in mission.
Make us a place of love, community, and unity.
Let us Rise to new heights of closeness with you.
We ask this in your most precious name.
                                                       Amen
