The Stewardship and Development Commission is responsible for the stewardship, strategic planning (both short and long range), and the use of technology to keep our parishioners connected. To implement our vision requires prayer, leadership, community support via dedicated and involved volunteers, AND a Master Plan to allow judicious development and conscientious management of our resources.
Ministries in this commission include:
|Staff:||Father Jimmy Drennan, Pastor|
|Ken Petri, Plant Manager|

As one of the fastest growing Catholic Churches, we need to adjust our infrastructure to meet these growing needs. We will soon distribute our Master Plan to all parishioners to show what we need to accomplish this in future years.

The Money Counters are a group of adults who have been appointed by the pastor to count money collected during the Saturday and Sunday Masses. They open the offertory envelopes, record the amount of each donation, sort bills and coins and prepare a tally sheet that documents the weekly collection totals. The money counters work each Monday under the direction of the Parish Bookkeeper.

Stewardship refers to, "the three T's" -- Time, Talent, and Treasure. Stewardship As Our Way of Life invites us to see our time, talent, and financial resources as gifts from God and asks us to make a response based on our being grateful. The more we are aware of being blessed, the more we want to express our gratitude. This is the heart of stewardship:
