Church of St Francis of Assisi

People often wonder why I work full time in the Church. The pay is not much and the working hours are eccentric. However it is something that I have always wanted to do – to help more Catholics to understand their faith and to have a relationship with God.

It is a joy to see people grow in faith and to have them coming up to say “Well-done.” Sometimes, things do get tough and tiring but it is also then that I realized that I need God more by praying and going to Mass. “He must become greater; I must become less.” – John 3:30

The unseen benefits of working for the Church are knowing more about my faith, learning to work with volunteers, leaders and religious. In the process, I also learn more about myself and with the help of Father Fred, improved on both my speaking and planning skills.

I am still an unfinished work but I know I will become a masterpiece eventually with the help of God and the people around me.

Thank you, Jesus.
