1. James 1:27 – “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.”
Stewardship at St. Joseph’s:
Give ONE HOUR OF YOUR WORK per week to the Church.
Give ONE HOUR OF YOUR WORK per month to Diocese or other charity.
Give TWO HOURS OF YOUR TIME AND TALENT per month to the Church
Catholic spirituality of Stewardship is based on gratitude, trust, and generosity: grateful for all we have, trusting that God will continue to provide, generous in our sharing. It invites us to use our time, talent, and treasure for the building of the kingdom of God.
TIME: Time is the gift that God gives to us of our life
TALENT: The abilities we have come both from a natural disposition and from our efforts to develop those abilities.
TREASURE: This commonly refers to money as money is the accepted form of exchange of goods; it could refer to any means of exchange that has value; our food drives for NEIGHBORLINK are examples of treasure
