Stewardship a way-of-life-colorOur Christian Stewardship Series teaches about sharing your gifts of time, talent, and treasure, and the importance of embracing stewardship as a way of life. Our Stewardship Ministry has developed a variety of resources to educate and inspire you, including our weekly Stewardship Corner

In the spring, we invited you to make commitments to prayer, sacraments, and ministry participation, and now we ask you to pledge financial support that is proportionate to the gifts God has provided to each of you. You can find resources to help you here.

As we all are inspired to make stewardship a way of life, we will experience joy and blessings individually and as a parish community. Please keep our parish in your daily prayers as we strive to passionately share the Gospel of Jesus with the community around us and to nourish our parish family through Eucharist, formation and service.
