Why Commit to Stewardship? PDF Print E-mail

Why is it so important to make stewardship pledges, each and every year?  Because doing so is key to on-going conversion to living stewardship as a way of life!

Through the annual stewardship commitment process, parishioners learn more about stewardship – what it is and how to live it or show how they are already living it.  The process gives parishioners the opportunity to examine their own gifts and realize how they can be applied to serve God.  The process informs parishioners of all the opportunities available in the parish and it encourages a deeper faith development all.  Lastly, making annual stewardship commitments provides an opportunity for new parishioners to become involved in parish life.  All in all, the annual stewardship commitment process is essential to ensuring that St. Thomas Aquinas Church is a vibrant stewardship parish!

 
Stewardship Commitments for 2015 PDF Print E-mail

God continues to entrust us with the work of Christ as together we strive to build God’s kingdom.  Here at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church, we embrace the spiritual principles of stewardship that center around our belief in God as the Giver of all good gifts.  As good stewards, we recognize these gifts, develop them, and use and share them with others, in the likeness and image of Christ.

As we embark on Stewardship Commitment 2015, “Stewardship: The Joy of the Gospel, Faith Working through Love”, all parishioners will soon be asked to learn stewardship in terms of their personal spiritual lives and the life of our parish and then pledge stewardship commitments for next year.  To help parishioners through this process, each of our families will receive a copy of the 2015 Stewardship Directory.  The Directory will include general information about stewardship, descriptions of parish Apostolate Groups in/through which to serve God and a 2015 Stewardship Commitment Form. The Directory should arrive in the mail around the first of November.

For those wishing to get a jump start on making their pledges for 2015 commitments, click here to access the Online Stewardship Commitment Form, which includes an electronic authorization for auto-debit of ordinary and extraordinary stewardship of treasure commitments. (No submission of paper form or voided check necessary!) Upon submission, the form will be routed directly to the church office for processing.

All parishioners are asked to submit their 2015 stewardship commitments as soon as possible yet no later than November 22 and 23 which is the diocesan Stewardship Commitment Weekend.  In concurrence with our Holy Father in the “Evangelii Gaudium”, parishioners of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church are encouraged to “…try a little harder to take the first step and become involved” (24) and follow Jesus’ lead in His washing the feet of His disciples.  As He told them, “You will be blessed if you do this,” (Jn. 13:17).

“Stewardship – The Joy of the Gospel, Faith Working through Love!”
