Director of Discipleship & Stewardship
As Catholics, we are called to recognize that everything we have, everything we can do is the result, in one way or another, of a gift we have received from God. If you can take some time now and start counting your blessings, you will realize how gifted and blessed you are. Living with joy and gratitude for the received blessings introduces us to a lifestyle called Stewardship. The US Conference of Catholic Bishops defines Stewardship as “an expression of discipleship, with the power to change how we understand and live our lives.”
Sharing our gifts of talents, time and treasure is a way to live like Jesus who did not keep anything for him and gave up all He had and died to make us whole.
St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Parish invites you to walk our journey of living this lifestyle and offers you a process of learning about and practicing stewardship through our web site, weekly bulletin and in campus conferences.
Our Parish offers you the option to make your weekly, monthly or annual donation electronically or by the traditional envelopes you receive by mail.
We invite you to continue apportioning your gifts and tides via regular mail or dropping in the black box outside the office or, even more secure, the online giving through our web site or the new application on your smartphone.
