When you hear the word stewardship in Church, you might start bracing yourself for the appeal of money that usually follows! But good stewardship is about much more. It means being faithful to your relationship with the One who has entrusted you with all the riches in your life - your talents, health, and energy, your loved ones and livelihood. Stewardship at root is a relationship with God and the People of God seen in the local Church. We could provide over fifty links to the verses in the bible that relate to stewardship and your spirituality as a Christian.

As parish we have a challenging mission. We need to be balanced: at times patient, and at times moving with a sense of urgency. Again as the Bible suggests, we are a mixture of wheat and weeds. Simultaneously, we are saint and sinner. Facing the tension of being both, we can be open to hear the good news with open hearts. We are a mixture of yeast and flour. The kingdom of God will grow. As stewards, we bring from the treasure the old and the new in building up the kingdom. May God be praised through our individual lives and parish life.
