Stewardship & Giving

Stewardship calls us to recognize that all of creation is a gift from God. We are responsible to use the gifts that God has entrusted to us in gratitude to God in everything we do.

Stewardship in our parish can include joining a parish organization, volunteering with ministries operated by the parish, enrolling in an educational program or giving financially to meet the needs of the parish.


Commitment to Parish Life (CPL)  was introduced in 2011 to assist with long-term planning and encourage parishioners to participate in the rich ministry life of St. Mary’s.  There are hundreds of opportunities for involvement that can lead you closer to Christ  – regardless of how much time you have to give.

CPL also affords each of us the opportunity to decide on an appropriate level of sustained offertory support and volunteerism, and fulfill our financial commitment in a convenient annual, semi-annual, quarterly, monthly or weekly method.  Highlights of CPL:

  • Opportunity for parishioners to become more active in the life and ministries of the parish.

  • Invitation to consider a sustained offertory commitment in a convenient format.

  • Opportunities for our parish to plan strategically to address present and future challenges.

Through sustained offertory and enhanced ministry, St. Mary’s Parish becomes a more vital, vibrant and engaged faith community.  Please consider our shared commitment to one another as a parish family by embracing this message of renewed support and fully participate in our Commitment to Parish Life Program.
