Stewardship Ministry

Stewardship

 

Dear Parishioner,

     “We are called, we are chosen, we are Christ for one another” are words to one of the hymns we sing and they describe stewardship beautifully.  We have a personal call to be a disciple of Jesus through our Baptism.  God gifted each of us with unique skills, abilities and financial means which we are called to use in service to others.  Stewardship offers an opportunity to use our gifts in service to our parish.

     Our stewardship theme this year is “You are Called… You are Gifted…What is your Response?”  The materials in this packet will help guide you and your family to answer the question, “What is Your Response”?

     Included are the following: 

  • The Annual Report reflecting on our stewardship from the past year
  • Directory of Ministries and Organizations that allows you to explore the many opportunities you have to invest your time and talent
  • Stewardship of Treasure Brochure for your response
  • Time and Talent Commitment Card for your response

     As in past years, each family is asked to complete a Response to Stewardship Treasure Card, and each family member is asked to complete a Time and Talent Commitment Card.   Additional forms will be available at Mass or can be downloaded from the website.  Please bring your forms to Mass on Discernment Weekend October 25th and 26th. Completed forms can also be mailed to the parish office.

      Please review the materials and prayerfully determine “YOUR RESPONSE” to the stewardship challenge.  

  • Pray for guidance as you plan how you can best use your unique gifts for stewardship.
  • When possible, discuss the materials as a family.

     God gives us so much and we will never be able to come close to matching the time, attention, love and support or blessings God showers upon us!   Let us work together to be good stewards of our gifts.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

St. Michael Parish Stewardship Committee
