St. Gregory's Parish, Clarks Green, held a ministry fair Oct. 13 and 14, during which time members were introduced to the new mission statement and given the opportunity to sign up to help with various ministries.
The mission statement, introduced during Mass by members of the Parish Council, stated, The parish community of St. Gregory guided by Christ's gospel message of love and nourished for mission at Eucharist, welcomes the world with open arms, faithful hearts and hands ready to serve.
The parish motto is Forward in Faith.
Council member Martha McAndrew said the council began developing the new statement in February. Everybody took part in submitting their ideas, she said, adding that in the end, everyone agreed on the final draft.
We like it and we hope the people like it, she said. That's what really matters.
Council member Jane Farr said she felt the ministry fair was a success. She said parish members can still sign up for ministry even though the event is over.
