Stewardship Month

For to everyone who has, more will be given and he will grow rich; but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.

Matthew 25:19

As written in the Parable of the Talents, God will one day settle accounts with each and every one of us, by asking us what we have done with the many talents and abilities, he has blessed us with. Did we use those talents and abilities to serve God and our brothers and sisters, or did we store those talents away like the third servant in the parable?

Every November, Our Lady of Perpetual Help St. Mary’s calls on all parishioners to ask themselves how they can serve God and their community. In the Gathering Space, all the ministries and what they do will be put on display, with forms to sign up to serve in any ministry that may interest you. While November is the Stewardship Month, we welcome parishioners to join ministries year round.

Everyone has a talent or ability that can be put to use in service, and it is up to us, to determine what that talent is. Under the Ministries/Pastoral Care tab, is the list of the different ministries that make up our Parish. For the Hispanic ministries, please click on Ministerios Hispanos.
