St. Agnes is now incorporating stewardship as a way of life. To learn more, please see the following videos. In thanksgiving for the many gifts we have received, we are called to offer our Time, Talent and Treasure.

A Christian stewards is one who receives God’s gifts gratefully, cultivates them responsibly, and returns them with increase to the Lord by sharing them lovingly with others.

Gifts are typically categorized as time, talent and treasure. But how do we practice this in everyday life?

  • Participate in weekday Mass at least once a month.
  • Pray together with my family.
  • Begin and end the day with prayer of praise / thanks.
  • Spend 1 hour a week at the adoration chapel.
  • Read the Scriptures each week.
  • Pray the Rosary.
  • Celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
  • Say grace before every meal.
  • Schedule time for a retreat or faith formation class.
  • Spend quality time with family or those close to me.
  • Comfort the afflicted.
