OUR LADY OF LOURDES - STEWARDSHIP COMMITMENT


Giving Back to God
 
Money and all of our possessions are gifts from God that we are asked to care for and generously and sacrificially share for our family needs and for the good of others.  God has blessed each of us with material possessions.  Giving treasure does not mean we give equally but that we sacrifice equally according to our means.  When we live a life that is God centered, not self centered, treasure giving becomes joyful.  Realizing we are all at different stages in our stewardship journey, please find some examples of a weekly offering based on the biblical tithe of 10% (i.e., Gen 14:18-20 and Gen 28:20-22).


GIFTS of TIME & PRAYER

In addition to the generous financial support Our Lady of Lourdes Parish receives, we are also blessed with an abundance of generous stewards. Many of these parishioners donate their time in  prayer for the community. In the Catechism of the Catholic Church, it is written: "Vocal prayer is an essential element of the Christian life." Even St. Paul tells us in 1 Thessalonians 5:17; Ephesians 5:20 "Pray constantly...always and for everything giving thanks in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father." The power of prayer brings us closer to God. The power of prayer sustains this Parish. The power of prayer makes all things possible. Please keep Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in your prayers.

GIFTS of TALENT & SERVICE

In a world of nearly 7 billion people, there is only one of each of us."God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him, male and female he created them." (Genesis 1:27) We are so uniquely made by God, each given our own talents and abilities to serve others. In the Catechism of the Catholic Church, it states "God entrusts to every creature the functions it is capable of performing, accordingto the capacities of its own nature."  Through our baptism we are called to discipleship and service. We are called to share what God has generously bestowed upon us. Consider utilizing your gifts "according to your capacities" in one of the 72 ministries and organizations of Our Lady of Lourdes Parish. Help our Parish community build up the Kingdom of God.
