Catholic Community of Waukesha

Stewardship Ministry

Stewardship is putting our faith in action through the use of the gifts given to us in service to others. It is becoming a true disciple of Jesus Christ.  

What is Stewardship?

Stewardship is a call from God to recognize that all of our blessings and talents have been given to us for a purpose. As baptized Catholics it is our obligation to share these gifts willingly in order to serve the Church and our parish community. Stewardship is more than financial support. It is putting our faith in action through the use of the gifts given to us in service to others. It is becoming a true disciple of Jesus Christ.

Did you know …?

A Stewardship Committee has been formed to help promote the gifts of time and talent that are freely given to us by God. Our vision is to unite faith and service, become a more welcoming parish, and show appreciation to those who do serve. Our committee seeks to encourage using the gifts given to us to serve others. There is a separate committee under the finance council that works with the treasure aspect of Stewardship.  

Stewardship Committee Prayer

Lord God, author of all that is good; you have given us a share of your goodness in many diverse gifts. We give you thanks for all you have given us and, in return, we offer you the gift of ourselves poured out in service for our brothers and sisters. Accept all we offer in humble thanksgiving and grant us the grace of being faithful stewards, that seeing our good works, all the world may praise your goodness. We pray this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
