Talent

Everyone has a talent to offer - Every pair of hands count
 

1.  Use your gifts.  If you can swing a hammer, use a screwdriver, sing, read, write, draw, cook, bake, teach, mop, etc., then there is an opportunity to help

2.  Families with or without young children can make a difference.  Be a role model for your children by sharing your talents

3.  Those who teach learn as much or more than those they instruct

4.  Christ has no hands but ours
 

Treasure

In your heart, you will find your treasure
 

1.  The military provides the place to worship.  We, the parish, must provide the services, the books and additional resources

2.  As able, work towards the biblical concept of tithing:  10% of what you receive, 5% to your parish and 5% to charities

3.  Children learn what they see and experience.  What would you save during a natural disaster, your money, your DVD, your pictures, your child ... ?
