Our Stewardship Prayer

Please bring the needs of our parish community and ministries into your thoughts and prayers this October.

Stewardship and “Screwtape” — A Message for Halloween!

Imagine a stranger coming to your door, making demands accompanied by threats. Worse, he’s wearing a disguise. The night is dark, the moon hidden by fall leaves still clinging to the trees. What a terrifying scenario. But, wait! It’s October 31, and the strangers are very small. They’re disguised as little Batmen and ballerinas, pirates […]

Fall: The Perfect Season for a Recommitment to Stewardship

Summer’s end brings with it nostalgia for carefree days, long nights, lazy weekend afternoons, reunions with families, and summer road trips. But in our parishes, autumn brings a burst of new life that makes September and October feel almost like spring. Why? For the Christian steward, fall brings a renewed sense of commitment. Literally, many […]

Don’t Second Guess the Urge to Share

“Even the smallest act of sharing can make a difference. I remembered that one summer day when slicing a cold watermelon. From my kitchen window I could see the thermometer’s reading of nearly 90 degrees by 9 a.m. I heard the usual Friday morning roar as the lawn crew arrived with their mowers, blowers and […]

Everything We Have is a Gift from God

Everything we have is a gift from God. That is a foundational principle in the spirituality of Christian stewardship. It is not easy to embrace the reality that everything we have is a gift from God.
