Why Is Service Important?

  • Great place for challenge and growth in kids – encounter some of the difficulties while being part of the solution.
  • Encounter people where they are.
  • Kids need a chance to experience the fact that the world does not revolve around them.
  • Gain some perspective on how good their own lives are by seeing how others live.
  • Can circle back to the humility and trust thing – learn to ask for help when they do need it (and we all do).
  • Can be done as a family – good for challenge and witness!
  • Love in action.

How Can We Serve?

A great place to start is the Church’s traditional listing of the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy.

The Corporal Works of Mercy
To feed the hungry;
To give drink to the thirsty;
To clothe the naked;
To harbour the harbourless;
To visit the sick;
To ransom the captive;
To bury the dead.
The Spiritual Works of Mercy
To instruct the ignorant;
To counsel the doubtful;
To admonish sinners;
To bear wrongs patiently;
To forgive offences willingly;
To comfort the afflicted;
To pray for the living and the dead.
