Stewardship Survey
Stewardship is the grateful response of a Christian disciple who recognizes and receives God’s gifts and shares these gifts in love of God and neighbor. By making our parishes places of hospitality, prayer, formation and service, we provide greater opportunities for the sharing of time, talent and treasure.

Individual parishioners are better able to commit generously and sacrificially their gifts of time, talent and treasure to support the parish mission when hospitality, prayer, formation and service are vibrant within the parish life.

Thank you for helping to guide our direction and initiatives for the upcoming months.

1. Hospitality: Jesus Christ teaches that whenever we welcome one of the least of our sisters and brothers, we welcome Christ Himself. Parishioners of a stewardship parish need to see the face of Christ in one another. 'When I was a stranger, you welcomed me.' Matt 25:35

2. Prayer - A Heart to Heart with God: Prayer and the sacraments dispose a soul to receive God's abundant graces, which are necessary to grow in holiness. It is through prayer that we nurture our personal relationship with Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 'Prayer is as necessary to our souls as food is to our bodies.' from Characteristics of a Christian Steward

3. Formation - Continuous Conversion: Formation is a formidable task, involving education of the mind and conversion of the heart. To know the "stewardship way of life", does not make one live a "stewardship way of life." Ongoing Catholic education is important if we are to grow in our lives as stewards. 'Being a disciple is not just something else to do, alongside many other things suitable for Christians, it is a total way of life and requires continuing conversion.' from USCCB's Stewardship a Disciple's Response - Pastoral Letter on Stewardship

4. Service - Love in Action: Members of a stewardship parish are ready to minister to varied needs of their own parish family as well as the needs of the wider community and Church. Just as the members of a family come together to help one of their own, a stewardship parish family serves those who are hurting or in need, doubting or seeking salvation. The parish family also comes together to celebrate, thank and return God's gifts. '...Amen I say to you, whatever you did for the least of my brothers, you did for me.' Matt. 25:40
