Lay Witness Resources

Invinting parishioners to share their story of stewardship is incredibly impactful and engaging for your parishioners. It is a great opportunity to give thanks to their peers, while offering their reasons for sharing their time, talents, and treasure with the parish community. Parishioners hearing this message often are encouraged to model after this parish steward. Please review the resources below and share any questions or additional needs you may have with us. 

This section highlights resources that you may use to enhance your parish Season of Stewardship. We encourage you to use these resources on your website, in your bulletin or on your Parish Facebook page. If you have any questions, please reach out to us!
