Stewardship...its not what you think it is.
Stewardship – it’s not what you think it is
This commission educates and promotes the giftedness of all parishioners and the responsibility of disciples to steward all resources. The members collaborate with the pastor and staff to develop strategies and practices which invite all parishioners and the parish organization itself to share time, talent, and treasure. For more information, please contact Michael Linstroth, (262) 536-4412, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stewardship – what is it, anyway? We often think about stewardship as a request for money, especially in the context of Church. But in reality, stewardship is much, much broader and all-encompassing. According to the U.S. Bishop’s Pastoral Letter on Stewardship, stewardship is helping the Church’s mission with our personal resources. Yes, money is part of it but so is sharing of skills, talents, passions and energy.
In a spirit of thanksgiving to God for all of His blessings, parishioners are asked to make a just and generous weekly or monthly contribution to the parish. Contributions can be made through a monthly bank draft or with envelopes provided by the office.
Stewardship of Time and Talent:
All members of our community have wonderful gifts and talents to share with the parish. Your participation in any way in the life of our parish helps make our community vibrant and strong. This booklet offers many ways to share your time and talent. In a spirit of thanksgiving to God for all of His blessings, parishioners are invited to share of their time and talent and to be active parishioners in parish life.
