STEWARDSHIP - GIVING BACK TO GOD
What is Stewardship?
The members of Holy Redeemer Catholic Church are called to be part of a grateful community, a prayerful community and a giving community, our focus is to put God first in our lives.
Stewardship is a way of life, a way of thanking God for all His blessings by returning a planned portion of time, talent and treasure to the Church and community. Stewardship involves being grateful for those unique gifts given by God to each person and sharing those gifts with the members of the Church and the community at large. Stewardship is an expression of discipleship, recognizing God as the origin of life, the giver of freedom and the source of all we have, are and will be.
Stewardship is living a commitment to God, not only in a single action, but it is a way of life. Stewardship is the growing of faith among the people individually and as a parish as a whole. Gratitude is our response to gifts given from God. Some can give everything—but everyone can give something—in time, talent and treasure. It is the road on which Jesus invites us to travel with Him.

Where Have My Envelopes Gone?
If you currently receive envelopes, you probably have noticed that your packets have gotten smaller. That is because we are no longer mailing certain envelopes . These envelopes are located by all of the bulletin racks by the doors of the church. Since the packets have gotten smaller we will be mailing envelopes every other month, which will result in significant postage savings. We also want to encourage the use of on-line giving. We currently have 275 families that give on-line and therefore they do not want or need envelopes. Please consider signing up for on-line giving.
