Why is it a privilege to be a registered parishioner of All Saints Church by Cristina De Leon
Why is it a privilege to be a registered parishioner of All Saints Church? Mother Teresa had once said, Keep the joy of loving God in your heart and share this joy with all you meet, especially your family. Be holy - let us pray. At All Saints Church, there is more than just registering as a parishioner and becoming part of the family. It is a privilege to be a parishioner of All Saints Church because it gives people many opportunities to become involved in various events and activities, including baptism, marriage, first communion, religious education, and many others. Additionally, being a parishioner creates more opportunities for meeting new people and establishes strong and long-lasting friendships with others.
Although registration is not a custom to most ethnic groups, registered parishioners assist in determining the demographics and the population of the parish. With the information gained from registered parishioners, the church can better serve the parish in terms of setting up goals and determining where the church is headed. Furthermore, registered parishioners also assist the church in determining the needs of the parish.
In a song titled "Teen Commandments", Paul Anka sang, The Creator gives you the week; give God back an hour. Going to church weekly is the least we can do to fulfill our religious obligation and by being a parishioner, it's more than just going to church on Sundays, it's about belonging to a family and making All Saints Church your home, your church. We all have our God-given talents, gifts, and fortes and we should cultivate and use them to the fullest. In addition to supporting financially, it is encouraged that all parishioners participate in the various ministries and committees because it is our responsibility to care for our church. We should all follow Mother Teresa's words by sharing God's love with others so that we can be proud parishioners and proclaim, "Blessed Be God in All the Saints!"
