Financial Stewardship

We as a parish have been blessed by the Lord in so many ways.  Finances are obviously very important to support our ministries, and we appreciate the generous stewardship we receive from parishioners as well as visitors to our parish. 

As Catholic Christians and good stewards, we recognize that all we have - our time, our talents, our resources, even our very lives - are gifts from God.  We are called to be good stewards of all these gifts, investing them wisely and generously for the sake of God's Kingdom.
