Stewardship

St. Paul Parish is a church dependent on its parishioners’ Stewardship of Time, Talent and Treasure. Because of your generosity, the church body as a whole is able to focus its energies in fulfilling its Mission: to proclaim the good news of God’s love for all people; to create a positive environment in which our common faith in Jesus Christ unites us; and to reach out in justice and charity to serve all people who are in need.

Stewardship of Time and Talent

St. Paul Parish depends on its many volunteers to participate in providing meaningful liturgies, maintaining the buildings and grounds, serving the community and helping with special projects, To find out more about the many ways that you can serve the parish visit the ministries tab on this website and determine where you can help. 

Stewardship of Treasure

Every year in the fall, parishioners are encouraged to fill out a Stewardship of Treasure card. This helps the church know how to budget for operational needs for the year, as well as give parishioners a chance to financially plan their Stewardship of Treasure.

In planning how much to give each year, we are asked to give proportionately and with honest discernment; so that the act of Sharing Our Treasure is done with ease of heart instead of bitterness, and is a cause for spiritual uplifting instead of a dreaded sacrifice.

Fulfilling a Stewardship Pledge

There are several ways to fulfill one’s Stewardship throughout the year. These are called Simplified Giving.

Sunday Envelopes

One’s annual stewardship pledge is what is usually given in the weekly Sunday Envelopes. They can be put in the basket at Mass, or mailed to the church. To sign up to receive envelopes, please call the office at 206-725-2050.
