“You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house. Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.”
(From Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount – Matthew 5: 14-16)
What is a Steward? Unlike an owner, a steward cares for property that belong to someone else. A steward is a trustee or a temporary custodian who has been given the responsibility for caring and managing the property and for making sure that it yields as much as possible.
Who is a Christian Steward? A Christian Steward is defined as “One who receives God’s gifts gratefully, cherishes and tends them in a responsible and accountable manner, shares them in justice and love with others and returns them with increase to the Lord.”
Jesus’ disciples and Christian stewards recognize God as the origin of life, giver of freedom and the source of all things. We are grateful for the gifts we have received and are eager to use them to show our love for God and for one another.
As Catholics, we are called to prayerfully reflect on our baptismal promise to follow Jesus and be an example of Christian Stewardship for others to follow.
Luke 12:32-48 “Wherever your treasure lies, there will your heart be. When much has been given a man, much will be required of him.”
How to Give:
WEEKLY ENVELOPES. When you register as a parishioner at Holy Family, you are automatically enrolled in our monthly envelope program. The monthly envelope packets contain enought envelopes for Weekly Regular Stewardship (general fund), Weekly Debt Reduction (Our Family, Our Faith, Our Future), as well as periodic Diocesan Collections, Holy Day Collections, and Support Catholic Education (to directly benefit Holy Family Catholic School). You can place your cash or check donations in these envelopes and drop them in the colleciton basket at Mass each weekend. (Note: We cannot substantiate gifts of loose cash. In order to receive credit for your gift on your annual statement of contributions, you must place your cash in your envelope so we can be certain that the gift is from you.)
ONLINE GIVING. Click Here to go to our online donation page. Online Giving can be used for one-time gifts as well as recurring gifts.
BILL PAY THROUGH YOUR BANK. You can use your online banking process to send paper checks to Holy Family. Make sure to note your parish envelope number in the memo line of the online bill/check. Please note we assume a gift is for Regular Stewardship (general fund) unless otherwise noted. If you wish to give to both Regular Stewardship and Debt Reduction, please set up two separate payments and note on the Debt Reduction payment that it is for “FFF” (Our Family, Our Faith, Our Future).
STOCKS/SECURITIES. Stock that has increased in value is one of the most popular assets used for charitable giving, once it has been held for more than one year. Making a gift of securities to us offers you the chance to help our organization while realizing many important benefits for yourself. Click Here.
PLANNED GIVING. Do you have money saved in an employee retirement plan, IRA or tax-sheltered annuity? Each of these retirement plan assets contains income that has yet to be taxed. Your beneficiaries will owe the income tax at your death, totaling up to 35 percent, which may be reason enough to consider giving your loved ones less heavily taxed assets and leaving your retirement plan assets to charity instead.
