The purpose of this committee is to implement the goal of the Pastoral Plan for Stewardship: Educate people to the reality that we have been blessed by God to be a blessing to others through financial support of our parish and service to our community.
Bishop Felipe Estévez has released his latest Pastoral Letter on Stewardship on the spirituality of stewardship.
“How can I repay the Lord for all the good done for me?” Psalm 116:12 The Stewardship Committee would like to affirm how our parish is spreading the Joy of Christ throughout our city, diocese, state, nation and world. As a supplement to our bulletin page (link? https://bulletins.discovermass.com/download.php?bulletin=M6QIgEnL5etBj0SsGgjif9%2FUDC5LUVMRQiJkPhF38yicXNxzJJ1g5%2FDzN22EyDdcLuFGbR%2BlShZYxO%2Bcp3A%2BndweCwOXRUFDlxxRVZstpXQ%3D) on our parish outreach efforts, we’ve compiled the following resource list to offer more information and perhaps inspiration.
