2022 Stewardship Renewal

STEWARDSHIP:  A Grateful Response to God’s Love

 “A steward makes God’s love visible by imitating Jesus.   The more deeply one grows in love for God, the more one grows in heart to see STEWARDSHIP AS A WAY OF LIFE, A WAY OF LOVE, IMITATING GOD’S LOVE FOR US.  Stewards see everything good as gifts received from God and they respond in gratitude with the gift of self.”  USCCB: Stewardship, A Disciples Response.

2022 STEWARDSHIP RENEWAL BEGINS OCTOBER 31ST!

We pray that you will take the time to review the stewardship material that was sent to you, and ask God in prayer – “Loving Father, how would You have me share more fully my Time, Talent and Treasure this year?”

 

HOW IS OUR PARISH DOING?

STATUS AS OF 12/09/2021:

 NUMBER OF REGISTERED FAMILIES: 564

NUMBER OF COMMITMENT CARDS RETURNED:  90

FROM A HEART OF GRATITUDE WE SHARE OUR TIME, TALENT, AND TREASURE.

Please take a few minutes to watch this video from the Archdiocese of Seattle.

What is Christian Stewardship?

Everything we possess is a gift from God, freely given to us for our good; this is a fundamental of our faith that is reiterated many times throughout Scripture. Stewardship is respecting and sharing our resources as an expression of gratitude to God for these gifts. It reminds us that we are the administrators, not the owners, of our assets. This gratitude should be a way of life, not simply a task that has a beginning and an end. Christian Stewardship calls us to share a portion of these gifts–our time, talent, and treasure–in gratitude for the abundant generosity we have received, so that the Good News of Jesus Christ may be shared with those who do not know Him.

Online Giving

Online giving is also now available! Please visit our online giving page to make a gift of your treasure.

Stewardship of money / possessions (our treasure) is one of the simplest ways to give back what we have been given. Like all things we posses, our money and material possessions are gifts from God that are meant to be shared. By giving our money to individuals and families in need, to the Church, and to other worthwhile charitable organizations we enrich our soul and  give thanks to a loving God for our many material blessings.

In thanksgiving for God’s gifts, each household at the Proto-Cathedral is encouraged to give proportionately to our income and our blessings, and to move up to (and beyond) the 10% biblical tithe:

5% to the Proto-Cathedral and 5% to other needs of the Church (Annual Catholic Appeal, Peter’s Pence, Mission Sunday, etc.).

This can be done as simply as through the Sunday offertory collection.

For more ways to steward your treasure, please contact us.

Remember, your parish is the nonprofit community that helps you carry out Christ’s mission.
