“Jesus’ disciples and Christian stewards recognize God as the origin of life, giver of freedom, and source of all things. We are grateful for the gifts we have received and are eager to use them to show our love for God and for one another. We look to the life and teaching of Jesus for guidance in living as Christian stewards…Stewards of God’s gifts are not passive beneficiaries. We cooperate with God in our own redemption and in the redemption of others.”To Be a Christian Steward, A Summary of the U.S. Bishops Pastoral Letter on Stewardship, 1992.
Stewardship is a way of life that enhances our relationship with God and with others. It acknowledges God as Creator and giver all gifts. Stewardship is a calling to develop our God-given gifts (our time, talent, and treasure) and return a portion of them back to God through generously sharing our gifts for the benefit of others.
With the growing community of our parish, stewardship of treasure not only gives back to God but also our parish. Through your gift of treasure we can continue to meet the demands of a growing parish community.
