Stewardship, a way of life.
"Get in the Boat and Row"
Every year at Thanksgiving, we
take time to stop and consider our many gifts, all the things we have to
be thankful for. Catholic Relief Services offers us another
perspective this year - not only can we be thankful for the gifts we have,
but for the gifts we have shared.
In the past
year we have supported many of Catholic Relief's Services efforts and
have reached out to those in need in our own community. How
thankful we can be that we have such gifts to share.
May you and
your family enjoy a blessed and peaceful Thanksgiving.

Stewardship Committee would like to thank everyone who participated in the
campaign to increase offertory giving. The initial results of the
program indicate that this was a very successful campaign. It is
hoped that this campaign, coupled with efforts to save energy and
continuing efforts to monitor and reduce expenses will allow us, in the
next few years, to move forward with plans for a Parish Center.
component of this year's Stewardship Campaign will begin in Advent.
This portion of the campaign involves updating all lists of committee and
ministry members. The Stewardship Committee is planning a
streamlined version of this process so that those currently active in
parish organizations will not need to fill out a commitment card:
Descriptions/Mission Statements of all organizations have been sent to all
organization heads/contact persons. Organizations heads have been
asked to review their organization description and update their membership
descriptions and membership lists will be publicized to the parish.
Parishioners will be asked to review these lists to see if they want to
make any changes in their current commitments to parish activities.
If people do
not want to make any changes to their commitments, they will need to do
nothing more. If people are interested in joining an organization or
take on a new ministry, they will have the opportunity to fill in a
commitment card or sign-up online. Likewise, if they wish to drop
out of an organization or ministry for which they are listed, they will be
asked to submit a card or go on line to indicate that they wish to
discontinue participation in an activity.
heads will then contact all new members to welcome them and arrange for
any training, if training is needed.
We hope that
this process will make it simpler and easier for those who want to be
active in our parish community.
