Ministry Tip of the Week
Nothing is ever simply a fundraiser.
Are fundraisers helpful? They certainly can be. Are we in this for the money? Definitely not. Is it enough that the money we raise will help fund important aspects of ministry? Yes... but we can still be intentional and make fundraisers far more fruitful.
A concrete example at our parish is the pancake breakfasts put on by the youth ministry over the past few years. We raise money to fund various activities, but our number one goal is the service we provide: the opportunity for our parish family to grow in community.
