Stewardship

 
 

Stewardship

Stewardship, or sharing the gifts God has given you, is a Christian discipline as much as prayer, reading scripture, serving others, and worship. The sharing of our gifts come from the belief that all gifts ( time, talent and treasure) come from God. These gifts need to be cherished, nurtured, and shared with others. God has entrusted us to use our gifts and respond with thanksgiving to those opportunities that further God's work in the world.

As disciples, we accept the call to follow Him without considering the consequences. We faithfully place everything in God's hands. We accept our vocation as disciples of Jesus Christ, who are invited and challenged to make stewardship a way of life. As Catholics, we hear Christ's call to follow Him through prayer, worship, faith formation, ministry and the sacraments.

"Stewardship is an expression of discipleship, with the power to change how we understand and live out our lives."

-- A Disciple's Response U.S. Bishops' Pastoral on Stewardship

St. Lawrence Church is more than a place to visit once a week. It is an ongoing source of spiritual strength and a center for learning, teaching and sharing our faith experience. Most importantly our parish is a community of believers where what is experienced in the Eucharist transforms our daily lives at home, in the workplace, and in society. Every man, woman, and child is called to care for and share God's gifts. Our stewardship of time, talent and treasure provides opportunities for spiritual and personal growth by serving God through unselfish and prayerful outreach to others.
