Stewardship Opportunities

Stewardship Thought For The Week
“One of the greatest gifts God gives us is the twenty-four hours we get at the start of each day. A gift of time is a good place to start living as a Christian Steward. One of the best uses of our time is in prayer.”


Stewardship Trivia
Did you know the rectory and parish offices were originally located at 1045 Eisenhower Road? As the parish grew, we needed more office space. The current office space and area we use today was built in 1998. We have offices for Fr. Mark, Sr. Annette, four full time employees, and seven part time employees. Over the years, we have had volunteers clean the office area which includes the reception area, work room, and conference room. If you are interested in this ministry, please contact Jim Clancy at or call 393-3778.
