Stewardship and Ways to Give



The More we have the more we can multiply our gifts and share them with others. To be a great steward means to be thoughtful. A gift of stewardship comes from the heart and it needs to be intentional, planned and proportionate. With planned giving we initiate and renew a stewardship commitment. Are you willing to give more than what you have?



Goals of a Steward includes Mission and Goals.

We are led by the Holy Spirit
and we follow his example to become a true steward. We need to worship God in our words in the sacrament.


 
We need to witness and share our faith with others. We also need to promote holiness through conversion and foster justice and mercy
