Stewardship Prayer

My church is composed of people like me.
I help make it what it is.
It will be friendly, if I am.
It will be holy, if I am.
Its pews will be filled, if I help fill them.
It will do great work, if I work.
It will be prayerful, if I pray.
It will make generous gifts to many causes, if I am a generous giver.
It will bring others into its worship, if I invite and bring them.
It will be a church of loyalty and love,
of fearlessness and faith,
of compassion, charity, and mercy,
if I who make it what it is,
am filled with these same things.
Therefore, with the help of God,
I now dedicate my­self to the task
of being all the things that I want my church to be.

Mission Statement

The Stewardship Commission strives to encourage all parishioners to understand Stewardship as a way of life, an attitude of the mind and heart that is expressed in action emphasizing that all people, things and experiences are gifts/blessings from God.

The Stewardship Commission asks the question of all parishioners:  Who is a Christian Steward?  We all are.  The Commission encourages us to identify our gifts and blessings, to be grateful for what we have been given, to cultivate and use those gifts responsibly, to share them lovingly in justice with others, and to return them back to God with increase.

The primary focus of this Commission is to be a catalyst for ongoing sharing of each parishioner’s individual gifts for the continued growth and betterment of the parish community in all ways.

As stewards, we have the opportunity to make decisions related to what God wants to do through us to accomplish his will.  Each contribution of time talent or treasure pays itself forward in untold ways.  Each act however small, effects a change in someone’s life, in our community and the giver’s life.  Christ teaches “give and you shall receive”.  Participating in a St. Luke ministry not only allows you to help others but to grow with every experience.

At St. Luke Parish, there are more than 70 ministries in which parishioners can become involved. Click on the "St. Luke Ministries" tab at the top of the page to help answer this question:

Lord, what do You want to do, through me,
to accomplish Your will for our Parish?
