In my parish, as in many others I’m sure, there are many things going on for the youth and most of the other ministries are carried out by older folks who are no longer working, meaning that they take place during the middle of the day. There aren’t many opportunities for working age adults who work a normal 9-5. My wife and I are fortunate enough to have flexible schedules to attend daily mass and do some of the daytime ministries such as nursing home visits, but most our age aren’t so fortunate with their work schedule.
I’d like try and start a ministry at my parish for working age adults. Have any of you done this before? I’d love to start a ministry with 30 something’s visiting the elderly.
I’d love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.
