|“What return can I make to the Lord for all the Lord has given to me?” — Psalm 116:12
Everything good comes, not from our own hard work or brilliance, but from our Heavenly Father who loves us enough to gift it to us in the first place. Our sacrificial giving is a way to show God our gratitude for the gifts we have received. Living as a steward of God’s gifts means radically changing the way you look at life. It all begins with prayer at home, with your family, eventually leading to the church, where we join together as a community of believers to receive Christ into our hearts during Eucharist.We invite you to be generous so that we may continue our ministries and our parish may flourish all for the greater glory of God.
