Fr. Victor P. Cinson, Jr Pastor
As pastor, I continue to be thankful for the many members whose stewardship of time, talent and treasure contribute to the vision of our parishes becoming what we are called to be as the People of God.
What is Stewardship? Stewardship is a journey. It is a life long conversion process in which we order every day and every decision to follow Christ and what or lives were meant to be. We take a step knowing that, even when we are unsure or scared, we are to trust the Lord with our whole heart, and love and serve the Lord and one another with our whole heart. God will always tell us where to take a step on our faith journey and we are to listen and loving follow. We will arrive safely in God's time and according to God's divine plan.
May God, who is never outdone in generosity, repay your kindness with the blessings of peace. May we continually become good stewards of God's gifts of time, talent, and treasure.
