"Once one chooses to become a disciple of Jesus Christ, stewardship is not an option."
Parable of the Talents Matthew 25:14-30
All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their possessions and goods and distribute the proceeds to all, as any had need. Day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread at home and ate their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having the goodwill of all the people. And day by day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved.
Acts of the Apostles 2: 43-47

Christ has no body now,
but yours.
No hands,
no feet on earth,
but yours.
Yours are the eyes
through which
Christ looks compassion
into the world.
Yours are the feet
with which
Christ walks to do good.
Yours are the hands
with which
Christ blesses the world.

St. Teresa of Avila
What are the qualities of a vibrant parish?
What are the obstacles?
If time and money were no object, what would you do for God?

Do not worry and say,
'What are we to eat?' or
'What are we to drink?' or
'What are we to wear?' ...
Your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides.
