Serve the Church through your time, talent, and treasure.

Excerpt from the U.S. Bishops' Pastoral Letter on Stewardship:

As Christian stewards, we receive God's gifts gratefully, cultivate them responsibly, share them lovingly in justice with others, and return them with increase to the Lord.

Stewards of God's gifts are not passive beneficiaries. We cooperate with God in our own redemption and in the redemption of others. We are also obliged to be stewards of the Churchβ€”collaborators and cooperators in continuing the redemptive work of Jesus Christ, which is the Church's essential mission. This missionβ€”proclaiming and teaching, serving and sanctifyingβ€”is our task. It is the personal responsibility of each one of us as stewards of the Church. All members of the Church have their own roles to play in carrying out its mission.
