We, the Catholic Community of Our Saviour’s, believe that we are created by God as part of His family, that we are redeemed by Jesus Christ and called by Him to witness to His good news.
We commit ourselves to this as we gather to worship joyfully to proclaim His word through our teaching ministries, and to extend His love through Christian concern for the needy and those marginalized.
We dedicate ourselves to live the Beatitudes by the power of the Holy Spirit for the glory of God.
OUR SAVIOUR’S -A STEWARDSHIP PARISH
“Whatever gift each of you may have received, use it in service to one another, like good stewards, dispensing the grace of God in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10
Our Saviour’s Catholic Community and each of it’s ministries strive to fulfill our diverse missions through the practice and pursuit of stewardship.
Stewardship, in its simplest form, acknowledges that all that we have and all that we are, comes from God. These gifts from God are provided to us as good stewards to use wisely, justly, and in gratitude. Each of us must place our own gifts, through the parish and through our ministries, at the service of one another and of those in need.
In the Pastoral Letter of the United States Bishops, titled Stewardship: A Disciple’s Response, a steward is defined as one…
1) Who receives God’s gifts gratefully.
2) Who cultivates and tends to those gifts in a responsible manner.
3) Who shares those gifts with all in justice and love.
4) Who returns gifts to the Lord with increase.
