At St. Rose, our understanding of Stewardship as a way of life is three-fold: Time, Talent and Treasure. Each year, we are asked to prayerfully discern our gifts in these areas. The Stewardship of Time & Talent booklet lists the many areas of parish life that one can become involved with at St. Rose in the areas of Community, Education, Service, Stewardship and Worship.
A STEWARDSHIP PRAYER
At Baptism we accepted the call to follow you.
I give you my hands to do your work.
I give you my eyes to see as you see.
I give you my tongue to speak your words.
I give you my mind to think as you think.
I give you my spirit so that you may pray in me.
I give you myself so that you may grow in me.
We give thanks to you
for the gifts you have given us –
our life, family and friends,
time, talent, and material possessions.
All we have comes from you.
Help us to remember this always
and rejoice in your generosity.
Help us always to hear the call
to live the Stewardship Way of Life.
