Christian stewardship begins with Christ’s message of love. It is our willingness to combine our efforts and to share generously our material gifts to help our parish fulfill its mission which is Christ’s mission – to teach, to draw us all into a community of faith-filled people, to serve one another, and to celebrate our faith.
We cannot do everything or help everyone, but through financial stewardship we can participate and make things happen! Through financial support to the parish we all visit the sick; we all are involved in religious education; we all counsel the bereaved; we all teach in the school; we all make the sacraments possible; we all send the parish newsletter; we all help outreach projects; we all cheer on the Bobcats; and the list goes on.
We ask you to reflect on all the gifts God has bestowed upon you, and in gratitude return some of your financial treasure to the church. Consider the suggested tithe of 5% or, if that is not possible, work to it by beginning by giving back the first hour of your workweek wage.

Stewardship of Time and Talent
Our parish ministries require not only your financial support, but also your participation to create a vibrant faith community that not only lives the word of God, but also lives out Jesus’ actions.
This month we are conducting our annual Time & Talent registration. You should have received your letter from Fr. Dennis and your Time and Talent materials in the mail. Your dedicated service is greatly needed in these and many other ministries across the parish. Please consider how you might “Love God-Love Others-Make Disciples.” May you share the Good News of the Risen Lord by glorifying Him with your gifts of time and talents.
Purchase pre-paid cards for retailers you frequent on a regular basis, including stores such as Sendiks, Starbucks, The Gap, Home Depot, Whole Foods, Mobil Gas cards and others. We buy the cards at a bulk discount, you pay face value for each card, and the parish receives the difference. Order forms may be found HERE and cards will be delivered to school or the parish office.
You can also buy your SCRIP online.
Want to place an order monthly? Find that order form HERE. You may also contact Kathy Wyatt at (414) 962-5691 or firstname.lastname@example.org for information. Visit our SCRIP volunteers in the back of church after weekend Masses!
