St. Thomas Ministries and Stewardship in the Catholic Church

A simple definition of Stewardship is to live out a commitment to be Christ-centered rather than self-centered. It is not about fund-raising, money or donations it is about prayerfully discerning which and how much of your God-given resources of time, talent, and treasure you can commit to our parish and community. These ministries give all of us a unique opportunity to deepen our faith in the Lord, through prayer and service. The various ministries of St. Thomas parish provide you with a wide variety of ways of connecting with our Parish community. Through these ministries you can learn and grow as an individual, meet others who share your values, and reach out to serve the larger parish and community. Our ministries survive on volunteers and we hope there is something for everyone! If not, join us in creating future ministries.

Opening our hearts to stewardship also opens our hearts to the Lord’s outpouring of His grace and mercy and strengthens us to go forth as His witnesses to the whole world. So read through our ministries and find one that speaks to you – and be a VOLUNTEER!
