Food For Faith made it to the Press this morning offering a comment on the unprecedented opportunity Bishop Martin is giving Christchurch Catholics to be a part of springtime of faith in the diocese.

One Response to "opportunity"
  1. In this regeneration priests are challenged by the bishop and parishioners “to be priests of Jesus Christ focused on their first calling as doctors of the soul, giving their time not to building maintenance and financial administration but to the celebration of Mass and the sacraments, living among the people with time to visit and chat, providing in their parish churches a refuge, a sanctuary of peace and prayer for busy parishioners and for anyone who might drop in”.

    This paragraph struck a chord. Given that most parishes have only one priest, is there opportunity for lay people to provide business ministry and free up the priest to focus on spiritual ministry?
