At St. Michael, we have embraced stewardship as a way of life for our parish family. Because the Eucharist is at the center of our faith, it is also at the center of our stewardship way of life. As we enter into this time of Renewal, let us ponder the reality that we are one in the Body of Christ. Please prayfully consider how God is calling you to use your Time, Talent and Treasure, and commit to those actions through filling out a 2021 Online Commitment Card.
By our Baptism, we have become the People of God. And it is through the reception of the Eucharist that we are unified as a Church to Christ - renewing, strengthening and deepening our union. As we witness the miracle of the Mass, the bread and wine becoming the Body and Blood of Christ, we are given hope. For it is in Christ's sacrifice that we, as the People of God, unite our praise, sufferings, prayer and work to Him (CCC, 1368). When we give God everything, our lives take on a new meaning. All that we do is one step closer to eternal life with the One Who loves us. Together, as a Church, we strive for holiness and sanctity.
"The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a participation in the body of Christ? Because the loaf of bread is one, we, though many, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf" - 1 Corinthians 10: 16-17
What is Stewardship?
"Stewardship is the grateful response of a Christian disciple who recognizes and receives God's gift and shares these gifts in love of God and neighbor." - Diocese of Wichita, KS
“Once one chooses to become a disciple of Jesus Christ, Stewardship is not an option.”
-Bishop John J. McRaith
