COLORADO SPRINGS. Parish Ministry, like the Catholic Church, is both ancient and new. Charitable works have been a part of parish life - tending to the worldly needs of people was the impetus for the diaconate through the Apostles in Acts 6:1-6. In the early church, each congregation had a list of needy recipients called a matriculum, and comparatively huge amounts of charity were given.  This work was recognized as a sign of the greater promise of God’s love and provision.
