Stewardship Commission

PURPOSE

The  Stewardship Commission is concerned with the promotion of christian stewardship as a way of life, and how living out our call to discipleship in service to the church and her members provides a living example by which the spirit of evangelization is witnessed.

 

FUNCTION

The commission's education responsibilities are to:

  • Foster a parish environment in which christian stewardship as a way of life is understood, accepted and practiced.
  • Develop programs that allow parishioners to discern their God-given skills and talents and how they may be put to use in the ministries of the church.
  • Develop family finance study programs bases on scripture and the catechism of the catholic church.
  • Encourage parishioners' endowment gifts through distribution of planned giving newsletters, wills awareness seminars and other materials.

OBJECTIVES

 Host an evening twice a year for parents on how to help their children discern their gifts and talents.
 During the Lenten season, initiate an envelope system for children to instill a sense of responsibility toward support of the parish community. “Donations” may be monetary or prayer.

 Each April, host a Catholic Services Appeal Discovery Night, showcasing all of the ministries and resources available for families through the Archdiocese of Detroit.
