The Stewardship Committee is responsible for the ongoing stewardship efforts of the Parish to include time, talent, and treasure. The goal is to increase parishioner involvement in all Parish activities and ministries which will promote a better sense of belonging and a sense of responsibility toward financial support. This committee is concerned with the renewal of Parish life and building community among all Parish members through small group formation, social activities, good communications, welcoming and hospitality efforts including the development of new Parish members, and the coordination of efforts in evangelization. This committee is the vehicle for the promotion of the concept of stewardship in the parish, working closely with the Pastoral Council and other committees.
The St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Faith Community hosts several fish frys each year to help bolster the Parish General Fund to help defray costs and necessary building maintenance.
Everyone is welcome to help—students (public and parochial), parents, young adults, older adults…........
Everyone is needed. It’s a lot of work...AND a lot of fun......try it out and see…….you’ll get “hooked!"
