SteThe Stewardship Committee’s main objective is to spread the message of stewardship to all parishioners and to foster stewardship as a way of life. This includes spreading the following basic precepts:

• We know we are called to follow our Lord, Jesus Christ in recognizing that all we possess, is a gift from the Father.
• We know we are called recognize the presence of the Holy Spirit in our own brothers and sisters.
• We know that we are called through baptism to gratefully share God’s gifts in proportion to what we have received.

The Stewardship Committee will oversee the annual Stewardship weekend as well as assist with the Archdiocesan fundraising appeal and will work to provide support and volunteers throughout the parish. Anyone interested in helping spread the Stewardship message should give on of the representatives a call. We need your help!

A Stewardship Reflection

My Church is composed of people like me.
I help make it what it is.
It will be friendly, if I am.
Its pews will be filled, if I fill them.
It will do great work, if I work.
It will make generous gifts to many causes, if I am a generous giver.
It will bring other people into its worship and fellowship, if I invite and bring them.
It will be a church of loyalty and love, of fearlessness and faith, and a church of noble spirit, if I, who make it what it is, am filled with those same things.
Therefore with the help of God, I shall dedicate myself to the task of being the things that I want my church to be.
