Stewardship of Treasure 2018
Sharing Our Abundant Blessings

 

During the month of October, 2018 you will be hearing about stewardship as a way of life at the Catholic Community of St. Odilia. In the early part of the month, your household will receive a letter and pledge materials from Fr. Rask asking you to make a prayerful stewardship commitment to our parish. During the month of October, we will reflect on stewardship at all of our Masses and "give thanks for our abundant blessings" by returning our pledge cards.

Stewardship Prayer 
Good and Gracious God, you have showered us
with a variety of gifts. Everything we are and
everything we have belongs to You. Bring us together
as a parish family, a caring people, sharing those gifts
with Your church and our community.
Guide us as we go forth to serve as Your disciples,
sharing freely of our time, our talent, and our material gifts,
to glorify You, acknowledge Your abundant blessings,
and care for each other as Jesus taught us. Amen.

International Catholic Stewardship Conference Award
 
The Catholic Community of St. Odilia was the second place winner of the International Catholic Stewardship Council (ICSC) Archbishop Thomas J. Murphy Memorial Parish Stewardship Award acknowledging St. Odilia as an exemplary stewardship parish with a long-term commitment to stewardship as a way of life.  The award was presented October 23 in Orlando, Florida.  Representatives of the Stewardship Council, Len Krenik, Pat Keyes, Mike McCarthy, Jim Donnelly, and Deb Peters accepted the award on behalf of the Parish.
 
The conference made us aware that we have been using God's Grace to drive many stewardship activities within our parish but not calling it stewardship. Receiving this award is an opportunity to show the work the Holy Spirit accomplishes through the parishioners of St. Odilia.
 
Stewardship is not the end-all. Stewardship is our path leading to evangelization calling us to be Disciples of Christ.  
 
THANK YOU PARISHIONERS FOR YOUR STEWARDSHIP IN MAKING THIS AWARD POSSIBLE!
