Does the church have too many ministries?
The church's multitude of ministries hinders parish involvement says this Catholic.

"I can’t help but wonder if in our zeal to create “ministries” we might have gone a little overboard. We’ve developed a penchant for giving ourselves fancy titles and official-looking name tags. We’ve designated specific people to be in charge of the simplest church tasks. (I’m waiting for Minister of the Hand Sanitizers to be next.)," says writer Patricia Morrison. "And in the process we might have lost sight of the reality that all of us—with titles or on committees or not—are called to be church together, to be Christ for one another."
