We are excited to announce the official kick-off to the Cathedral Season of Stewardship! Last year was the inaugural season, and to say the least, we all were surprised and grateful. I had already found myself with newborn twins by Oct. 1st and because of the commitment and generosity of the Cathedral staff, the torch for our first Season of Stewardship carried forward. We were so touched by the generous response from so many of you! You answered your call to intentional discipleship with eagerness and enthusiasm! Over this past year, we have been able to connect parishioners to new faith formation programs, ministries and ways of giving. The generosity outpoured from the community through prayer, service, and giving has transformed the Cathedral! We are so grateful for your response.
We know many of you still are eager to become connected and find companions for this discipleship journey! We want to accompany you! Take some time with us over the next few weeks to discern:
- Where do I spend my time? Is it in worldly experiences or with Jesus through prayer, adoration, or the Sacraments?
- How do I serve others, as Jesus asked me to do?
- Have I discerned God’s gifts in my life? What has he given to me, in order to share with others?
- How does my life model an intentional disciple’s life? How can I bring Christ to others?
- Who can I invite to accompany me to a greater relationship with God through stewardship?
Over the next few weeks, you will hear a message of stewardship that hopes to invite you into a deeper conversion. Stewardship is a toolkit for disciples in action. It calls to mind our need to offer all of ourselves- our time, talent, and treasure. We are invited to respond during every Mass at the Offertory. Jesus longs for you to respond to Him and encounter His love for you. Just say “Yes, Lord!”
If you have any questions or if you would like more information, please contact Katie Price, Stewardship Coordinator, at email@example.com.

Have you been searching for more meaning or explanation for the experiences of your life? How would engaging in prayer (daily Mass, Bible study, etc.) help in this effort?
