Our Christian Call to STEWARDSHIP

“Not to be served but to serve” -  Although St. Joseph Parish has a long tradition of service by its members, participation of a greater percentage of parishioners has been realized since formally introducing Stewardship in the fall of 2010.  The number of ministries continues to grow as members come forward with their talents and skills to address the needs of the parish and the surrounding community.

Stewardship Is: 

As proclaimed by biblical prophets and authors under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, a good Steward:

  • Receives God’s gifts gratefully;
  • Cultivates them responsibly;
  • Shares them lovingly with others and
  • Returns them with increase to God.
 

Stewardship Renewal:  Each fall, St. Joseph Parish conducts a Stewardship renewal, during which we reflect on how we each are being stewards of those graces and gifts we have received from God, and how we can employ them to fulfill our baptismal commitments to further bring about the Kingdom of God.  During the renewal, a Ministry Fair with more than 50 participants is held in the Msgr. Gribbin Parish Hall.  Shortly thereafter, we make our commitments as to how we will use our time and talents in the parish in the coming year.
