How Your Gift Can Make a Difference
God has given each one of us gifts, graces, talents and abilities that are to be shared responsibly and wisely with others. Stewardship is more than the occasional act of charity and service. It is the way we live our lives, the commitment we give of our time, talent and treasure in thanksgiving for all the blessings we have received. Though we are made up of many faithful from parishes across our Archdiocese, we are one spiritual community. We are called to have an Encounter: Live in Faith, Give in Love. To work in this vineyard so that it bears fruit to nourish the faith of our families, our friends and our neighbors.Read More
