October, 2017

Dear Parishioner,

Our stewardship theme this year is Stewardship…. It’s all about Gratitude….. It is all about Giving Back….
It’s all about God.   As a Stewardship parish we strive to keep God as our center as we consider how to use our time, talent and treasures.  Please find in this packet:

  • The Annual Report that reflects on our stewardship from the past year
  • Directory of Ministries and Organizations that allows you to explore the many the opportunities you have to invest your time and talent.
  • Response to Time and Talent Commitment Card
  • Response to Stewardship of Treasure Brochure

As you consider how Grateful you are for God’s gifts in your life, and pray about how you can commit to Giving Back

  • Read these materials
  • Discuss as a Family
  • Pray for guidance
  • Each family member will be asked to complete a Time and Talent Commitment Card during the discernment weekend.
  • Each Family should complete a Response to Stewardship of Treasure Card
  • You may also go the St Michael’s the Archangel’s website and complete your commitment for time, talent and treasure (put link here)

Discernment Weekend will be October 28th and 29th 2017, please bring your cards with you to Mass that weekend, send them to the parish office or go to the parish weekend and complete commitment forms.

Yes, God asks a lot from us.  But only because He has given has given us so much and we will Never be able to come close to matching the time, attention, love and support or blessings He gives us!

Sincerely Yours in Christ,

St. Michael Parish Stewardship Committee
Kathy Smithberger, Chair

Loving God, I come to you in thanksgiving, knowing that all that I am and all that I have is a gift from you.
In faith and love, help me to do your will.
