Stewardship

What is Stewardship?

Stewardship is a spirituality, a way of life, which encourages us to receive God’s gifts gratefully, cultivate them responsibly, share them lovingly with others and return them with increase. Stewardship is the intentional, planned and proportionate giving of our Time, Talent and Treasure. It encourages everybody to share whatever time, talent and resources they have at their disposal.

What does the Stewardship Committee hope to achieve?

The Committee is a group of people brought together by Father Peter for the purpose of developing Stewardship within the Parish. It’s aim is to encourage an atmosphere of hospitality, identify and welcome new parishioners and to encourage them to become actively involved in the life of the Parish, develop a commitment within the Parish to on-going stewardship awareness, encourage parishioners to contribute their time, talent and material resources for the benefit of the parish and the community, and to coordinate current parish ministries and activities and identify appropriate ones for future development.
