Members of Resurrection Parish are “generations of disciples living a stewardship way of life.” We believe that stewardship is a conversion of heart that brings about an understanding that everything we have and everything we are able to do is a gift from God. Although stewardship exists in all aspects of our lives, the three areas of stewardship that we focus on as a parish and diocese are prayer, service, and sharing.
Seven Signs of a Stewardship Parish By Bishop Robert Morneau
A Theology of Stewardship By Bishop Robert Morneau
As a Stewardship Parish, we constantly strive to live out our baptismal calls through prayer, service, and sharing; through the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy; and by acting justly, loving tenderly, and walking humbly with our God. (Micah 6:8)
Every individual is blessed with certain talents/strengths. Take a moment to consider your blessings. What has God given you that makes you the unique person you are? Do you have a way with children? Volunteer one hour a week at school. Do you enjoy elderly persons? Play bingo or visit at a nursing home. Do you love to bake? Can you make a batch of brownies or cupcakes for the monthly meal our parish serves at the homeless shelter? Do you love music? Consider joining the choir or cantoring at Mass. Maybe your love of plants would move you to help maintain the flower gardens around the parish property. How about carpentry, sewing or organizing skills? All are gifts meant to be shared. God asks us to gratefully contribute our gifts to make the Body of Christ vibrant and healthy.
