LOCAL PARISH STEWARDSHIP  – MAY 2019


The month of May is Local Parish Stewardship Month. May is an opportunity to ask all parishioners to take some time in the days and weeks ahead to reflect on the following question: “Lord, what do You want me to do with all the gifts You have given me?” 

When many of us hear the word “stewardship,” we often think it is all about money. That is not the case. Stewardship is all about doing what God wants us to do with the gifts He has given us. The challenge is that we cannot know what God wants from us unless we spend time every day communicating with God.

 

Stewardship of Time, Talent and Treasure:

·         Time is…Talking to God in Prayer, Attending Mass and services, assisting with parish activities, investing in community activities, being present to family and friends.

·         Talent is…Being a lector or usher, serving on a committee, leading a specific ministry, teaching to instruct and inspire, witnessing and evangelizing.

·         Treasure is… A planned, up-front decision to give, in grateful response to our blessings, sacrificial and without reservation.
