Introduction to Stewardship
Saint Francis of Assisi prayed that “It is better to give, than to receive.” Stewardship is generosity in action. It is recognizing our responsibility to care for one another and to respond as best we can to the needs in our community. As such, stewardship is living the Christian life as fully and abundantly as possible. This is done by receiving God’s gifts gratefully, cherishing and tending them in a responsible and accountable manner, sharing them in justice and love with others and returning them with increase to the Lord.

Tree of Life
The Tree of Life is a legacy, a lasting way to remember the important moments during our lives on earth and a lasting way to remember loved ones who will always remain a part of our lives. The Tree of Life is a work of art and is a fitting permanent memorial for all of life’s special moments.

Leaving a Legacy in Your Community
As a Faith Community, many rely upon us for spiritual nourishment, to teach children, give guidance to youth, preserve our history, console the grieving, visit the sick, welcome new members, reconcile the sinner, instill hope, joy and love. Yet none of this can happen without you.
As a Church, we rely solely upon parishioners and friends like you who give generously of their time, talent and treasure throughout their lives. Yet did you know that by including a charitable gift in your will, you will help to continue our work well into the future? You can continue to make a difference in the lives that follow.
