Together with other Ascension ministers, you will…
Here's what some past participants have told us about the session…
About Stewardship at Ascension
Approximately one year ago, the Stewardship Team came together at the direction of our parish leadership to develop the principle of stewardship as a way of life at Ascension. The team's formation has focused on setting goals to raise awareness of Christian stewardship as a way of life, and identifying opportunities to continue the efforts of the countless Ascension parishioners who continually embrace the life of a Christian steward.
What does a stewardship parish look and feel like? Our own parish mission statement confirms that we value the diversity of gifts in all people. For us, stewardship is about each of us recognizing our gifts and sharing those gifts as stewards of our faith. The stewardship vision statement was developed to address that question and guide the team's efforts. It reads:
Called to be stewards of our Christian faith, Ascension Parish members believe in God as the source of all that we are; recognize and share our gifts; foster a life of gratitude and service to all.
As the Stewardship Team moves forward with that vision, they will work with the Ascension community to focus on sharing our God-given gifts in service to all. In the months ahead, they will work very closely with Father Larry, Parish Council, and Parish Staff, in addition to reaching out to the members of Ascension ministries and to individual members of the parish.
