Jesus calls us, as his disciples, to a new way of life—the Christian way of life—of which stewardship is part. But Jesus does not call us as nameless people in a faceless crowd. He calls us individually, by name. Each one of us—clergy, religious, lay person; married, single; adult, child—has a personal vocation. God intends each one of us to play a unique role in carrying out the divine plan. The challenge, then, is to understand our role—our vocation—and to respond generously to this call from God. Christian vocation entails the practice of stewardship. In addition, Christ calls each of us to be stewards of our personal vocations, which we receive from God.
CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL
Our combined diocesan and parish goals amount to $106,000 this year, our parish goal being the technological upgrades we need in our classrooms, youth room, social hall, church and rectory, while our diocesan goal of $49,400 is for our share of the combined diocesan subsidies ($186,000) for Prince of Peace Center in Farrell and Catholic Charities Counseling and Adoption Services in Sharon. If you haven’t had a chance to pledge, please call the office at 724.528.3539.
