“For everything is from You and we only give You what we have received from You.” 1 Chronicles 29:14
The fulfillment of the mission of St. John Vianney parish depends upon the prayers, sacrifices, participation and financial support of all of its members. Our parish programs and ministries enhance the lives of thousands of people every week. It is true that it is in giving that we receive. We all have time, talent, and treasure – the question is how will we use them.
Stewardship is a way of life for Christians, or at least it should be. For us, it is not merely the charitable giving of money, it is a part of our discipleship, a part of living our baptismal promises. To be a faithful Catholic means that we give of ourselves and our possessions, including our time and our wealth. We give not just to fill a need, but because we believe that we are called to imitate God who is the giver of all good things. We have a need to give!
