Stewardship

 

 

Stewardship Committee

Members of this committee have the responsibility of creating a spirit of stewardship in the parish.   They encourage parishioners to share their time, talent and treasure in thanksgiving for the gifts God bestows on each of us.  Committee members seek ways to invite parishioners to express their gratitude to God by connecting together in community and giving back generously in response to God’s call to love and care for one another. The committee works with staff and Parish Pastoral Council to identify parish needs and connect stewards to meet those needs.   They provide forums that help ministries, committees and groups promote their missions, build membership and increase outreach.

Please contact Bruce Gordon in the parish office if you are interested in joining this group.  bruce@stmichaelcanton.org or 330-492-3119 ext. 211

 


 

Stewardship… the Joy of Time… A way of life          

The 2018 Stewardship Campaign is focused on the JOY you can receive by using your TIME to celebrate God’s gifts.  Over the next 8 weeks we are going to give you some statements to pray and reflect on, as well as, ways you can explore how you can use TIME to celebrate God in your life.

 Time is a gift how we spend it is a matter of habit.  There are 10,080 minutes in a week, how are you spending your time?   How much of your time do you give to your family? What amount of time do you give to personal prayer, ministry, God?   How much joy do you get from your time?

Set aside 5 to 10 minutes each day to pray for the RCIA candidates

Pray with your family before meals, or take your family to pray the Rosary on Sunday nights at 6:30

Plan on attending daily Mass as the way to start your day

Encourage your children/teens to join the parish scouting organizations and complete the badges related to their faith, register them for PSR, encourage them to participate in LifeTeen activities

Reflect on how the Liturgy Committee, Musicians, Lectors, Eucharistic ministers, Greeters, and Priests impact your joy at Mass.  Write a note of thanks to them, or consider joining their ministry.

Attend the Social Justice Committee meeting to hear about how sharing a small amount of time can dramatically impact another person’s life


Prayer for Stewardship

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.
