Some parishes, although rural and small, are alive and vibrant with parish activity that goes far beyond the Sunday weekend Mass schedule. Usually these parishes share their pastor with one or more other parishes. The parishioners have come to understand how important it is to assist the pastor with parish responsibilities and have come forward to volunteer in areas such as, sacramental preparation, visiting the sick and homebound, training liturgical ministers, music ministry for liturgies, social justice issues, business administration, financial issues and many more areas of parish life.
