Stewardship

What We Offer

To adequately finance resources to enable the parish to reach its goals and mission and to serve as stewards of God’s green earth (land, air and water). Our goal is that the Ministry of Stewardship encourages and equips young and old to identify and share the gifts and resources God has given them for the good of the Parish that serves members and community.
