Because everything is a gift from God, our mission is to cultivate Stewardship as a way of life by engaging parishioners to gratefully share the God given gifts through service, prayer and giving. Our main goal is to challenge the parish to stewardship and action as a way of life.

What is Stewardship?
Christian stewardship is a way of living in which we recognize that everything belongs to God. All resources must be used for God’s glory and the common good. Solidarity is the fruit of stewardship.
How can I be a Steward?
"As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's varied grace" (1 Pt 4:10).
What identifies a steward? Safeguarding material and human resources and using them responsibly are one answer; so is generous giving of time, talent, and treasure. But being a Christian steward means more. As Christian stewards, we receive God's gifts gratefully, cultivate them responsibly, share them lovingly in justice with others, and return them with increase to the Lord.
Time and Talent Opportunities
Recently, our new Time and Talent survey was distributed. It is our hope that you took it home to pray and reflect on how best you can complete it.Take time to read through and mark off any talent that you currently participate in as well as talents that you are willing to share. No talent should be disregarded. The Stewardship Committee is committed to compiling the results and sharing them with parish committees or where they best fit.Your talents and the gift of your time is a special offering that is deeply appreciated. On behalf of the Stewardship committee thank you for sharing your gifts of time and talent. Completed forms may be dropped into the offertory basket, placed in the basket in the narthex or sent to the parish office.
