St. Patrick's parish community supports and encourages "stewardship sharing" as a way of life, as a path for Christian Discipleship, and as an expression of our gratefulness to the Lord for God's many blessings and gifts.
There are four basic convictions that underscore the stewardship lifestyle:
Everything we have is a gift from a loving and generous God.
God gave the world and all its resources to us to "care for", not to possess unconditionally.
Our fitting and grateful response to God is to give back a portion of our many blessings and gifts.
We share our time, talent and resources with others as an expression of our thanks and gratitude to God.
We believe that the future of our parish community, and of our broader human community, will ultimately be determined by the quality of the "world's" stewardship commitment and sense of obligation to return something.
We invite you to consider more than one hundred ministries and organizations that make-up our parish family, and to discern where God is calling you to devote your personal gifts, time, and talent. The opportunities to share your God-given skills, abilities, and personal talents are many. Call or email Fr. Jim for a listing of parish ministries and organizations: (847) 244-4161, or firstname.lastname@example.org .
