Seven Essential Elements

Seven Essential Elements of Parish Life
The Seven Essential Elements of Parish Life constantly interrelate, each nurturing and supporting the other with the communal celebration of Sunday Eucharist at the center.
 
The Parish as One Body
 
If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be?
If the whole body were hearing, where would the sense of smell be?
But as it is, God placed the parts, each one of them, in the body as he intended...
The eye cannot say to the hand, “I do not need you,”
nor again the head to the feet, “I do not need you.”
Indeed, the parts of the body that seem to be weaker are all the more necessary...
Now you are Christ’s body, and individually parts of it.
(1 Cr. 12:17-25)
