Jesus is the supreme teacher of Christian stewardship, as he is of every other aspect of Christian life. The Stewardship Committee consists of parishioners who are committed to deepening their understanding of the Christian vocation, which is essentially a call to be a disciple of Jesus. Stewardship is part of that. They are committed to helping each of us have a better understanding of our calling to be good stewards.
Jesus Christ called and gathered disciples who longed for the Kingdom of God. Jesus formed his disciples for mission and sent them to share the message of salvation. When fully mature, a disciple commits their entire way of life to the Lord.
The Stewardship Committee is charged with the mission of helping us grow in our desire to imitate Christ – to follow Christ and try to live his life as our own. The spirituality of being a steward means living with trust in God’s generosity and a responsible tending of that which God has entrusted to us. It means the fair, just, and righteous sharing of resources with others. This committee seeks to promote our dedication to prayer, and our willingness to share our time, talent and treasure with the parish, the diocese, and our community. It also works with the members of the annual Ministry Fair.
