Stewardship is a beautiful expression of our love of God. It is a way of life whereby we, as disciples, recognize that a person is not an absolute master of his/her own gifts. As stewards, we are caretakers of all God's gifts. All we have and all we are comes from God, and as a way to thank Him for His blessings, we return to God, a portion of the time and treasure allotted to us. In Paul's second letter to the Corinthians we hear the words "You are being enriched in every way for all generosity, which through us....supplies the needs of the holy ones but is also overflowing in many acts of thanksgiving to God."
The Stewardship Drive is our opportunity to Celebrate Our Gifts that God has bestowed on our parish family and to recommit ourselves to share with others what we have been given through our donation of time, talent and treasure. I ask you to read, reflect, and commit yourselves in various ways to share your blessings with others. This process will help us deepen our faith and forever change our lives for the better. Jesus tells us through the gospel of Matthew, "Your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Heavenly Father." (Matthew 5:16) Your good works will allow God to touch others through you. Let your light shine through your good works so that together, we can celebrate the blessings of the God who loves us.
Arts & Environment
Arts and Environment coordinates with Fr. Larry on the decoration of the church for the Liturgical Seasons. When the Parish Hall is used for mass Arts and Environment also coordinates this effort. Besides changing the liturgical colors and banners for each season, the committee also orders flowers and palms for each season and places them in proper place.
Building & Grounds
The Buildings and Grounds Committee oversees the planning and implementation of structural changes, additions, or rehabilitation of church and school property, as well as new construction. Buildings and Grounds also handle the rental of buildings and determine adequate insurance for outside groups or organizations who rent our buildings.
The Cemetery Board responsibilities include the operation and maintenance of the cemetery grounds under the direction of our Pastor.
