Worthy of special respect and praise in the Church are the laity, single or married, who, in a definitive way or for a period, put their person and their professional competence at the service of institutions and their activities” (Decree on the Apostolate of Lay People, Chapter IV, #22)
“If anyone wishes to rank first, he must remain the last one of all and the servant of all.” Mark 9:35

“There are many opportunities available to members of Holy Family Catholic Church to participate in our ongoing stewardship program. On the last page of the Welcome Guide you will find a Stewardship form to assist you in selecting programs and activities in which you may wish to give of your “Time and Talent”. The work of our parish commissions and service organizations has been described in the preceding pages. The volunteer opportunities available within these commissions and organizations has been summarized on the Stewardship form.
After you have had an opportunity to review these programs and activities, please complete the Stewardship form indicating the programs in which you would like to participate. Be sure to include your name, address and telephone number in the block provided. Tear out the completed Stewardship form from the back of the booklet and return it to the parish office or place it in the regular offertory collection basket at your convenience. The chairperson of the commission or organization will contact you if your time or talents are required.
Holy Family parish is very fortunate to have a great number of programs and activities which enhance the spiritual and temporal well being of our parish and our community. We ask you to consider giving a portion of your “Time, Talent and Treasure” to your church and community. The Stewardship of Treasure invites us to see our financial resources as gifts from God and asks us to make a response based on our being grateful. The more we are aware of being blessed, the more we want to express our gratitude. This is the heart of stewardship!
- Recognizes everything we have as a gift from God
- Calls forth praise and gratitude
- Has us desiring to make a grateful response
