A Steward’s Creed
I believe in the gifts of God.
I am grateful for all I have been given.
These gifts are not mine to have, but mine to share.
When they are shared, my gifts will make a difference for others.
I believe that the act of giving is more important than the gift itself.
I will make giving a priority.
I will give to others because so much of what I have comes from others.
I give of who I am, what I do, and what I have.
To my family, my faith, and my community, I will give of myself.
As Christ gave so much for so many, so I will give to you.
And, I will be thankful for the opportunity to give.
There are many opportunities at St. Mary’s to give with a joyful heart. Everyone has been blessed with special gifts,talents and and treasures. Using these gifts for the benefit of others enlivens one’s faith and enriches the life of another.
Personal Stewardship Share our knowledge, talent, love and experience.
Financial Stewardship Give generously and joyfully.
