“The theme for the 500 YoC is “Gifted to Give.” It is taken from the Gospel of Matthew (Mt. 10:8): “What you receive as a gift, give as a gift.” “Gifted to Give” is a proclamation of God’s goodness and generosity, that all that we are and all that we have do not come from our own selves. It is a humble acknowledgement that it is from God that we receive the gift of faith. We treasure this gift of faith; we desire to share it with others. While our faith leads us to our own salvation, we are called to share it with others. Our faith is the fountain of our religiosity and piety but it is also the force that impels us to go to others. With our presence and our service, we share this wonderful gift by reaching out to others in love and by giving them hope of the abiding presence of our Heavenly Father in this imperfect world”.
