Parish Stewardship

Parish Stewardship encourages and fosters ongoing reflection on the depth and scope of one's personal investment as a partner with Jesus Christ and with the parish community in the mission of the Church.

II Corinthians 9:6-15
God provides "every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work." (v. 8) There is no need to "sow sparingly" and hence "reap sparingly." We can "sow bountifully" and "reap bountifully" (v. 6), "enriched in every way for [our] great generosity." (v. 11)

Do we take time to consider everything required to make St. Jerome the Church what it is?

 We are familiar with the lectors, eucharistic ministers, ushers, greeters, music ministry and even the fellowship committee team. They are STEWARDS of the Church.

The altar guild does the linens and there is also church cleaners, nursery workers, flower team,  catechists, pro-life ministry, funeral preparation/receptions, prison ministry, gardening, and much more. They are STEWARDS of the Church.

They have answered Christ's call and expectation to be stewards sharing their time, talents and treasure.

The Collection for the Lord’s People

And now, brothers and sisters, we want you to know about the grace that God has given the Macedonian churches. In the midst of a very severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own, they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the Lord’s people. And they exceeded our expectations: They gave themselves first of all to the Lord, and then by the will of God also to us.
