STEWARDSHIP OF TREASURE
At this time of year, we are asked to think about our stewardship of all those gifts that God has placed in our trust. Not just how we are taking care of those gifts, but how we are sharing those gifts with our parish and our community. In the coming weeks we will be asked to consider if we are returning a portion of those gifts to the Lord through His instrument on earth, the Church, for the building up of His Kingdom.
Pledge cards were mailed last week and are available in the pews. Or you can pledge online. When you complete a pledge card, you are helping our parish plan for the future.
