Stewardship

This committee’s goal is to further the mission of the Parish by fostering awareness of God’s abundant blessing he has bestowed on us; encourage and assist individuals in responding to the needs of the parish by sharing their gifts of time, talent and treasure. The stewardship committee assists the Pastor in developing stewardship as a way of life.

Why I Can’t Be a Good Steward?

I Have No Talent:
o God has given each of us special gifts that no one else has
o Stewardship provides a way to grow spiritually
o You need to be a good example for your children and grandchildren
O Rather than deny your talent, Jesus asks that we use what he has given us to be
drawn closer to Him

I Will Only Help When Asked:
o With Stewardship comes responsibility and commitment
o We should not wait on an invitation to serve when God has already called us.
o We are called to give freely of ourselves as thanksgiving for all God has given us.

My Life is Too Busy:
o God is never busy for us. 
o God’s time is not proportional to our giving 
o More time spent within the parish brings us closer to Christ
o Our gratitude for the gift of time cannot be fully understood without returning the 
service to others. 
o How sad it is if we become so busy that we lose sight of what God calls us to do and that is to serve others

I Go To Mass Isn’t That Enough?
o Each of us have already been given a personal invitation to share in our faith community with Christ
o Being good stewards require us to attend to everything that God calls us to do.
o Receiving the sacraments is not everything necessary to be a faithful Catholic
o We owe much to those who serve St. Anne, but still need you to be committed and involved in the parish. It doesn’t end with Mass.

I’ve Already Done It All:
o We need to thank God every day for the wonderful gifts He has given us
o We are to handle them graciously by returning the favor given to us.
o At different stages of life we are given the opportunity to serve in many new ways calling on new and undiscovered gifts.
o For all that has been accomplished in this parish and for all that is yet to come we need everyone to join us in unity and prayer.
o Come share in the JOY of the LORD!
