Pentecost Sunday by Sandy Villa

As I looked over the 2nd reading from 1 Corinthians for Pentecost Sunday, it bought to mind all the people in the parish who give so much of their time, energy, and talents to help our parish community run so smoothly. Everyone has been endowed with certain gifts and talents that were meant for a special place in our parish family that only that person could fill. No matter how big or small your gifts, they are all still very valuable to all of us. As the reading indicates there are different kinds of spiritual gifts and different forms of service, but the same Lord and Spirit who produces all of them in everyone. So, I thank everyone who does so much to make Ss. Columba-Brigid Church such a special place, whether it’s washing the purificators, helping in the food pantry, praying for others and everything in between, it is important and appreciated.  Sincerely, Sandy Villa
