On January 15, 2012 our Parish Trustees, Dan Silva and Maryann Haskell, presented to the parish during the weekend Liturgies our annual Financial and Ministry Report. Hard copies of the 8 page report were made available for all. Please feel free to view and print the full report (please note: this is a large file and may take several minutes to download).
The crucial financial statistics and commentary are summarized in these two pages.
A steward is someone who takes care of what belongs to someone else, like an administrator or trustee, not an owner. Christian stewards recognize that everything really belongs to God - everything we are and everything we have - and that God will hold us accountable for how we use the many gifts He entrusted to our care. If we truly believe this and experience a conversion of heart, we can't help but respond with profound gratitude. This gratitude is expressed in our celebration of the Eucharist (the very word means thanks) and in the way we live our everyday lives.
The Stewardship way of life is a biblically based Catholic spirituality. Living each day as a good steward means answering our own personal call from Jesus Christ to be his disciple; following his example of loving service to others. In their Pastoral Letter "Stewardship: A Disciples Response", the American Bishops describe a Christian steward as:
"One who receives God's gifts gratefully, cherishes and tends them in a responsible and accountable manner, shares them in justice and love with others, and returns them with increase to the Lord."
Gifts from God are not meant to be hoarded or kept only for our own use, but to be shared with others so everyone has a share in God's abundant graces.
It is an electronic offering program for our parishioners who are given the opportunity to sign up to have their offering conveniently transferred from their credit card, checking or savings account into the church's bank account every month.
