Time, Talent, Prayer, and Treasure
Stewardship is a Gospel call to live our lives with a spirit of gratitude for all God has given us. Traditionally, the church talks about three aspects of stewardship: time, talent, and treasure. St. Charles Borromeo adds what we believe to be another important aspect of our call, stewardship of prayer. All are important to the success of our parish. We at St. Charles Borromeo believe that God becomes known through the interaction of people who care. Whether responding to the needs of the poor with the St. Vincent de Paul group; helping with the youth mission trip; cleaning the church; assisting at the annual parish picnic or auction; joining a commission; or participating in one of the many other opportunities described in our Parish Handbook – you can help make our world a better place.
