Stewardship embodies the Bible's mandate to tithe a percentage of our time, talent, and treasure to God and His Church. As Bishop Olmsted has taught, the foundation of stewardship is spending time with God for prayer and worship. We should then use our God given gifts to support His Church, such as through one of our many ministries and parish groups.
If able, we pray that you also support our parish financially. All information is kept in the strictest confidence and allows for the continuing of parish services at no additional charge. For more information, please consult our Parish Stewardship Report or contact the Parish Office.
In the spirit of stewardship, St. Paul's three councils (Pastoral, Finance, and Stewardship) humbly share their time, talent, and treasure to serve as guidance to the office of the Pastor. The Tri Council members and the Together Let Us Go Forth cabinet members form a family of passionate people with an openness to serve. As we embark on our next stewardship season, we heed Pope St. John Paul II's message that "the lay faithful must offer the very valuable contribution, more necessary than ever, of a systematic work in catechesis . . . and that Christian parents are the primary and irreplaceable catechists of their children . . . however, we all ought to be aware of the 'rights' that each baptized person has to being instructed, educated, and supported in the faith and Christian life" (Christifideles Laci 34). Therefore, it is vital that members of the Tri Council are aligned with St. Paul's mission to catechize (teach the faith) and evangelize (share the Gospel) to build up the Kingdom of God at our parish. The teaching of our children begins at birth, with our parents being the first model of Trinitarian Love (Father, Mother, and Child). The Tri Council is committed to the family centric community of faith by utilizing our gifts to support our parish family and all our brothers and sisters. Each one of us has the same call to holiness; therefore, we ask you to join us in prayer for St. Paul Parish and for good guidance to the Tri Council and our Pastor to support you, your family, and our family of faith. If you wish to become involved with either of these councils, please contact the Parish Office.
