Stewardship

STEWARDSHIP IS A WAY OF LIFE...

As Christian stewards at Our Mother of Good Counsel, we receive God's gifts gratefully, cultivate them responsibly, share them lovingly in justice with others, and return them with increase to the Lord.

Our Mission

To maximize awareness of the wonderful faith community we're building here at Our Mother of Good Counsel. We seek to engender greater participation across parish membership and to make greater use of everyone's time, talent and treasure.

Stewardship Prayer

Lord God, you alone are the source of every good gift, of the vast array of our universe, and the mystery of each human life.

We praise You and we thank You for your great power and Your tender, faithful love.

Everything we are and everything we have is Your gift, and after having created us You have given us into the keeping of Your Son, Jesus Christ.

Fill our minds with His truth and our hearts with His love, that in His spirit we may be bonded together into a community of faith, a parish family, a caring people.

In the name and spirit of Jesus, we commit ourselves to be good stewards of the gifts entrusted to us, to share our time, our talent, our material gifts as an outward sign of the treasure we hold in Jesus.

Amen.
