The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has defined stewardship as “a life of total accountability and responsibility, acknowledging God as Creator and owner of all.” As we travel our faith journey through the Church Year, following in the footsteps of Jesus as His disciples, let us reflect on how accountable and responsible we have been with the gifts God has given us. Were we the good stewards that we are called to be? Did we give back with increase a portion of what we have received from our abundantly generous God? Have we grown in our faith and shared our time, talent, and treasure with others? It is not too late. “Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you will be your servant; whoever wishes to be first among you will be the slave of all. For the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:43-45)

APPEAL UPDATE  As our Stewardship Appeal draws to a close, 158 households have increased their offertory contribution, representing a combined weekly increase of $1,228.25. Our average weekly increase is $7.77. St. Daniel Parish is truly blessed with generous stewards. Thank you!
