What is Stewardship?
Stewardship is the intentional, grateful and loving response of a Christian disciple - a way of life that recognizes, receives and shares God's gifts for the good of all, making Jesus Christ known and loved.
Being stewards of the faith is recognizing that we own nothing, that we are simply caretakers (stewards) of all that God has entrusted to us.
The Greatest Gift
Essentially, stewardship is faithfully using your time, talent and treasure to bring others to Christ.
Jesus Christ is God’s greatest gift to us. Stewardship tells us to share a portion of our time, talent and treasure so that God’s Gift, Jesus Christ, may be given to those who do not know Him.
Our parish Stewardship Committee is tasked with organizing the Parish Census to ensure all of our parishioner's information is up to date. They also update you on our latest report from the Bishop's Faith Appeal. Our parish's latest figures are below.
