"A Foundation for Stewardship"

‘Stewardship is not something you “do”.  The stewardship way of life is not a program, but a process.  It is not an activity with a start and a finish. Stewardship is a way of life. It is the Christian disciple’s way of life.  In other words, it is the way we must live once we give our lives to the Lord.’ 

Msgr. Thomas McGread (former pastor of St. Francis of Assis parish).  His  message was simple, share our gifts of time, talent and treasure for the service of God and all of His people.
