Stewardship program - Warragul and Drouin
Warragul-Drouin Community Weekend
Welcome to week three of our Parish Stewardship Program.
This week celebrates the role of our parish as a community of faith – as an authentic community where people are welcomed, known and loved.
It is a place of care, support and outreach – with a clear mission to live the values of the Gospel.
This means that we all have a responsibility to use our gifts and talents for the benefit of others – making our time available to be involved in one of our many groups and ministries. We all have a contribution to make – so have a look at the “Groups & Ministries” list to see what best suits you.
At Masses this weekend we will hear from members of the Parish Leadership team who will talk about the impact our faith and our parish has made in their lives and how important it is for us all to make our contributions to parish life.

Leadership Team thoughts
Q: Why is it important to be actively involved in Parish Groups and Ministries?
“To give back to the Parish and God”
“As people we have a need to be in communities to help with loneliness and give life a purpose”
“Putting my faith to work, keeps it real. I get back more than I give”
“Our Parish Groups and Ministries breathe life into our parish but it is People who breathe life into those groups and ministries. We can only truly be the body of Christ if we do it together”
“To continue the work of Jesus in our community; reaching out to others: family friends, people we meet”
“The church cannot run on prayer alone. We must be active and give of our time and talents to see our parish function effectively”
“Connection with each other”
“It is important to be actively involved in Parish Groups and Ministries, because that is how we answer our baptismal call of being disciples of Christ”
