We have a vision in the Archdiocese to become a more missionary church – to renew our faith, to become even stewards of Christ.
Stewardship is not a program or a project. It is a way of life. It is about taking care of and giving back to God, through His Church, the blessings He has given us.
At the heart of all that we do now and into the future is Jesus the Lord. We need to continually ask ourselves, ‘In light of Jesus’ love for me and my faith in him, what must I do?
As Mary said “Yes” to the enormous task being asked of her, which forever changed the world, so we might say ‘Yes’ to change our lives and the lives of others for the better.
We are all “God’s co-workers” (1 Cor 3:9) sharing in His “creative, redemptive and sanctifying work.”
I look forward to building an even stronger Parish life together with you.
