There are different gifts but the same Spirit;
there are different ministries but the same Lord;
there are different works but the same God
who accomplishes all of them in everyone.
To each person the manifestation of the
Spirit is given for the common good.
1 Corinthians 12:4-7
The Diocese of Manchester is blessed to have many dedicated, competent men and women who generously share the gifts entrusted to them by the Holy Spirit to serve the People of God. They serve in parishes, schools, hospitals, prisons, and other ministry settings. These lay men and women generously give of their time to support the work of the Church and the community for the common good, and in response to specific needs. We encourage you to consult with your parish to see how you can actively participate in these groups and lend your talents and spiritual gifts where they may be needed.
