Alleluia! The Lord is Risen indeed! How does our money and the stewardship we
exercise over it relate to the message of Easter? It may be as simple as saying: I believe Jesus rose from the dead. I believe that Jesus’ risen life can be
experienced in word and sacrament. I
believe Jesus intended his followers to be part of a community of faith. I give sacrificially so that the ongoing
ministry of justice, peace, and reconciliation can be lived out in Jesus’ Name.
year’s Special Easter Offering, of over $6,000, is for the needs of our St.
Michael household – to restore the wood of our church entrance, repair our
organ and to replace funds we have borrowed from ourselves the past few years
to cover deficits in our annual budget.
Many faithful stewards of our parish have died in recent years. We want to encourage many good works and
outreach to the poor and homeless in our community and health promotion ministry
in Guatemala, so the Discretionary Fund, Social Action, Meals Program, Food
Pantry, and Guatemala Project have regular collections. The parish supports all of these
ministries. Thank you for your faithful
stewardship to our parish work. Jesus is
“indeed” risen and the Holy Spirit is moving among us!
