In biblical usage, “Stewardship” is the management of whatever a person is entrusted with, not only to preserve but profitably administer for his master, ultimately for God. Christ proposed the faithful steward as model for the responsible Christian (Luke 12:42). The Apostles are chosen stewards of the divine mysteries (I Corinthians 4:1-2), and every Christian is a steward of the mysteries of God (I Peter 4:10). Jesus praised the unjust steward of the parable, not because he was dishonest, but because of his foresight, since "the children of this world are more astute in dealing with their own kind than are the children of light" (Luke 16:1-8). This is the ultimate lesson of stewardship: that a human being is not owner but only custodian of God's gifts in this world, to use them and produce with them the fruits of eternal life.
(Etym. Old English stigweard, "keeper of the hall": stig, hall + weard, keeper.)

With heavy hearts we regret to announce that this year’s Vacation Bible School has been cancelled due to the lack of certified EIM adult volunteers. As you all know, we are a Stewardship Parish and we rely heavily on volunteers to make programs like these happen. We hope to continue VBS next summer, so for those of you who are able to, please consider updating your EIM certification and volunteering to help with next year’s program. If you have questions, please contact Kimberly Lindsey at or Fr. Luis in the parish office.

Con gran pesar lamentamos anunciar que la Escuelita de Bíblia Vacacional de este año ha sido cancelada debido a la falta de voluntarios adultos que han sido certificados en el taller de Ética e Integridad. Como todos ustedes saben, somos una parroquia de administración, por lo que dependemos en gran medida de voluntarios para hacer que estos programas se realicen. Esperamos continuar con la Escuelita el próximo verano, así que para aquellos de ustedes que pueden hacerlo, considere actualizar su certificación de Ética y ser voluntario para ayudar en el programa del próximo año. Si tiene preguntas, póngase en contacto con el Padre Luis en la oficina de la parroquia.

Please be aware of a scam: Parishioners are receiving texts and emails asking for gift cards that appear to be from Father Luis, but it is indeed a scam.  If you receive one of these, please do not reply. ******THIS IS A SCAM******

Tenga en cuenta de una estafa: los feligreses están recibiendo mensajes de texto y correos electrónicos solicitando tarjetas de regalo que parecen ser del Padre Luis, pero de hecho es una estafa. Si recibe uno de estos, por favor no responda. ******ESTO ES UNA ESTAFA******
