All that I possess – my character, my health, my wealth, my time – come from God and belong to God. This is the fundamental meaning of stewardship: Everything belongs to God.
The U.S. Catholic bishops said in Stewardship: A Disciple’s Response: “A Christian steward is one who receives God’s gifts gratefully, cherishes and tends them in a responsible and accountable manner, shares them in justice and love with others and returns them with increase to the Lord.”
At St. Clare Church, stewardship is a way in which we come together to share our gifts of Time, Talent and Treasure. Hopefully, as you read through the following stewardship ministry descriptions, something will draw your interest which may invite you to become more involved. Or, if you think of another stewardship activity, we would love to hear from you.
Parishioners interested in becoming part of any of these ministries are encouraged to contact the parish office. For those ministries which require some training, sessions are scheduled on an as-needed basis. Many ministries meet monthly. Please consult the bulletin for date and time.
