Call to Stewardship

The theology of Stewardship (Time, Talent, Treasure) is grounded in the conviction that everything belongs to God and our response can only be one of gratitude.

Time: means we give time to the Lord through private prayer and our family attending Mass each weekend at St. John the Baptist in union with fellow parishioners.

Talent: means our giving is out of gratitude, it is giving for the sake of giving without strings attached. We commit ourselves to giving 1% of our gross family income or we must be realistic in the amount of our gross family income. We renew our commitment each year. None of us wants to short change God.

Lord, it is you who calls us to Stewardship in our lives. It is you who sowed the seeds of talent in us and have helped us to harvest a multitude of blessings in this world. Bless our parish, strengthen our faith and grant us the spirit of Total Stewardship so that we may give generously of our time, talent and treasure to the spreading of your kingdom here at St. John the Baptist Parish and throughout the world. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen

St. John The Baptist Church, Thane
