Stewardship: Sharing our Treasure
As a major component of the Parish Stewardship Plan, we annually share a portion of our Treasure, in the form of meaningful financial support, with worthy agencies or organizations. Your participation in this process is welcome and essential because only agencies that you, the parishioner, identify and nominate can be considered by the Parish Council to receive these funds. Please review the criteria provided below to assess if the agency / organization qualifies and fill out the form provided in the following link to nominate the agency / organization.
