Stewardship: Sharing the Gifts We Have Been Given
“How shall I make a return to the Lord for all the good he has done for me?” Psalm 116
Stewardship acknowledges God as Creator and Giver of all gifts. As disciples of the Lord Jesus, we are motivated to share our time, talent and treasure with the Church and other worthy causes from a deep sense of gratitude and in a planned, proportionate and sacrificial manner. Stewardship is a way of life that enhances our relationship with God and with one another.
God is the Giver of every gift we have in life–our life itself, our faith in Him, world and its precious resources, our family and friends and loved ones, our health, our jobs, our personalities, the different gifts and talents that each one of us have–all of these are God’s gifts to us. So naturally, we make a return for all the wonderful gifts He has given to us.
Giving is to show gratitude to God, an acknowledgement that our gifts are really His gifts to us, and our total dependence on Him. Giving changes us because it is not simply a financial program, it is a spiritual program of total love of God.

Remembering the Parish in your Will
An important way for members of one generation to have a lasting impact on the parish and its institutions is to make a lump sum bequest, or estate percentage bequest, in one’s Will. The legal title of the parish is “All Saints Catholic Congregation, Berlin, WI.” A bequest may also be made to one or both of our Endowment Funds–“ASCS Endowment Fund”.
