VITA Member’s Profile

A VITA Member…

  • Believes in the Gospel, in the authority of the Magisterium and the teachings of the Church
  • Understands and believes in the Pastoral Plan for the Archdiocese
  • Works cohesively with others in Christian love, charity, patience and humility
  • Empowers through prayer and discipleship

“The VITA meeting was awesome! As its name suggests, we are called to be LIFE-giving by living out our identity as Volunteers In The Archdiocese” – Cindy Tay, Vita WebApp

A VITA Member’s Approach and Attitudes:

  • I am grateful and blessed that I am able to offer my talents and time for Christ and His Church in whatever role I am tasked with
  • I give unconditionally all that I can. The Lord makes all of my gifts good and worthy, so I pray for the grace to surrender and trust in Him
  • With Christian humility and love, I protect and pray for those around me who are serving in VITA – everyone deserves my love and respect for being a fellow worker in His vineyard
  • I pray to accept all things and circumstances knowing that my contribution, no matter how small, is part of His grand design
  • I give freely and I expect nothing in return. This attitude helps me keep my intentions pure and my offerings worthy of Him

“Two things mentioned by Archie at the VITA meeting struck and made me reflect deeply on my role as a Catholic. Firstly, that we as Catholics cannot just be disciples only but we must become Missionary disciples. Secondly, we do not just serve the Church but all of humanity” – Adrian Ong, VITA Social Media

Remain Steadfast – Must Watch

To serve the Lord and His people is not as simple or as easy as one might think. There are lots of frustrations, challenges and difficulties getting things done, getting people to agree and support us, and finding responsible, creative and talented people to help. Very often, we find ourselves constrained in so many ways, by time, resources, manpower and opposition. So all the goodwill and joy in the ministry are taken away and we are left simply with the duty and the responsibility to complete what we have started. So how can we suffer the ordeal of ministry?
