Stewardship Committee

Mission/Goals: The mission of the Stewardship Committee is to assist parishioners in understanding and embracing the importance of stewardship in their daily lives and in the life our our community.

Update: All parishioners, young and old, have gifts to share. Giving our time and talent is an important aspect of our Christianity. Sharing time means being with God in prayer and worship, sharing love with family and friends, and volunteering in church and community activities that help others and promote justice. Sharing our talent arises from our God-given abilities to do certain things well and our responsibility to develop and use these talents. Please prayerfully consider giving back a portion of your time by engaging your talents in service to God and your parish/school. All responses gratefully accepted!

Members: Fr. Patrick Hilgendorf, Deacon Al Boboth, Judy Johnson, Peg Macek, Monica Flathman, Chuck Gerlach and Matt Henning, Deanne Mainey.
