Just over two years have passed since we became the merged parish of St. Genevieve's. In that time we have seen what happens when we work together and for a team. I love the acronym TEAM - Together Everyone Accomplished More. I am grateful for the spirit of faith and enthusiasm evident in our parishioners. We are a wonderful and caring parish with
many members involved in our various ministries.
At this juncture I would like to encourage your participation in the shared ministry of our parish. Living our faith is a great challenge in today's world. As Christian stewards of God's many gifts to us, we are called to share those gifts with others. Through your generosity, you can respond to that call. The value of your parish service and financial support cannot be measured in just hours or in dollars and cents. Your investment in our faith community will pay lasting dividends in the hearts of those our parish serves.
You recently heard some thoughts and perspectives from parishioners about sharing their gifts. You also received a letter and a brochure with some thoughts about stewardship from Pope Francis and a pamphlet describing what stewardship could look like in our parish. The A gift inventory/commitment form included with this letter is to encourage you to think about how you can respond to God's many blessings and share those gifts with others.
All that we have is a gift from God. We are called as disciples of Christ to serve others. I encourage you to grow in our response to God's generosity as we walk together on our faith journey.
May God bless you and reward you in full measure for your commitment to our parish community.
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Greg Esty
