Stewardship is a way of life which can be put into action in all aspects of our lives. As members of the Body of Christ, the health of that body depends on the individual contribution of each member.
Lay people have a very important role to play in the mission of salvation. By Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist, we are commissioned by Christ himself to this mission. In Lumen Gentium from Vatican II, we are told that “every layman, in virtue of the very gifts bestowed upon him, is at the same time a witness and a living instrument of the mission of the Church itself.”
The questions we must ask are: What are the gifts God has given me that I have never even thought to thank him for? What are the areas in this community which could use my help? Am I only employing my talents where there is a financial return?
Our gifts of time, talent and treasure can be put to full use in a number of ministries in our parish. If you would like to find out more about any of these ministries or parish groups, please contact us by filling out this form
