Stewardship means so many things on so many different levels. It’s been said  that stewardship is where one’s faith meets the real world. Giving of our time, treasure and talent is vitally important to the present and future vitality of the St. James community.  First, we must give ourselves to God and then we must give of ourselves to the world around us.


The weekly offertory is an example of stewardship. Tutoring school children, donating food or clothing to the needy, volunteering for any of the social service ministries of St. James: these are all means of stewardship. Our brief time on earth is not about the accumulation of material things but how we share with each other and make the world around us a better place.
