This weekend will be our parish “Stewardship Sunday”. Stewardship, simply put, is a recognition of the many gifts with which God has blessed us, and our appropriate response in thanksgiving. People often talk about Stewardship in terms of “time, talents and treasure”. It will be an opportunity for me to say thank you to all of you who generously contribute to our parish family and our mission together by the giving of your time, talents and treasure. In particular, I will be focussing on the “treasure” you give to enable us to bring people closer to Jesus in hope and joy and I will be offering an enormous thank you to you all. I will also be inviting you to ‘pledge’ your giving for next year as part of our worship. There is nothing ‘binding’ about this but simply an opportunity to symbolically make your regular giving to the parish linked with our offering at Mass and Jesus’s offering on the Cross. I know that many of you aren’t in a position to give of your ‘treasure’ at this time, so there will also be the opportunity for you to continue to support us with your prayers and gifts of time and talents. We cannot and must not measure our faith by what we give, but our giving can always be done prayerfully, as an expression of our faith in God and his promises.
