What does Stewardship mean at St. Anthony Parish?
Genuine, thought-out stewardship is not about pain or depletion. Stewardship is most deeply about pleasure and increase. If you think about it for just a moment, you realize how good you feel when you are generous, when you are doing something that makes a difference in someone’s life. That is what underlies good stewardship, which makes it actually quite natural in our lives.
As the U.S. Catholic bishops said in Stewardship:
A Disciple’s Response
“A Christian steward is one who receives God’s gifts gratefully, cherishes and tends them in a responsible and accountable manner, shares them in justice and love with others and returns them with increase to the Lord.”
At St. Anthony Parish parishioners can seek volunteer in different ways, including the following:
