The Season of Stewardship is kicking off next weekend, Oct. 27th and all are welcome to join us in this discernment process. As the Diocese continues to move towards activating disciples, this parish is engaging in the four pillars to support that effort: prayer, hospitality, service, and formation.
You are probably witness to the many ways the Cathedral has embraced the four pillars:
Prayer: Daily Mass, Adoration, daily Confessions, liturgical celebrations…
Hospitality: Alpha program, greeters, program hospitality, Reboot Service: Habitat for Humanity, CCCW projects and more…
Formation: Year-long formation program led by the priests and on-going adult faith formation series…
There is A LOT going on in the spirit of stewardship at Cathedral!
For those in the parish who may be new to a Season of Stewardship or stewardship practices in general, we would like to take some time to answer the most common questions presented to us. If you have any further questions or comments, please reach out to us!
What is the Season of Stewardship?
The Season of Stewardship is a discernment process that invites each of us and our households to prayerfully discerning our commitment to a stewardship way of life through offering time in prayer, service, and generosity.
Who can participate in the Season of Stewardship?
Anyone can participate in the Season of Stewardship by filling out a Good Faith Intention Card. If you are interested in joining the parish, you may make known that intention on the card.
I am not a member of the Cathedral, though…
The Cathedral is the mother church of the Diocese, so in a way we are all participants in the stewardship of the Cathedral. If you are interested in going to any of our faith formation programs, Cathedral concerts, or the like, please know your participation is encouraged and welcomed!
I filled out a card last year, do I have to again this year?
Our hope is that everyone was contacted and engaged in the areas of their interests last year. However, your interest or availability may have changed over the last year, so we ask you to fill out this discernment card each year and make another visible commitment to practicing stewardship. Please know, we will always do our best to connect you to the ministries that interest you or help you in stewarding your gifts to the parish.
But, I am nervous about getting involved or I don’t know where my talents would best serve the parish…
It is easy for us to say, “Don’t be nervous,” but please, don’t be! Pray about your participation and offering up those nerves or fears to the Lord. He will help guide you in this discernment process if you turn to Him!
