Giving - The Stewardship of Treasure

The Stewardship of Treasure

At St. Joseph Parish, we are encouraging each other to be better stewards of our money, setting aside a generous offering to the parish each week.  This is an important part of our Stewardship Renewal.

Talking about money in a church setting is distasteful to some people - but it shouldn't be.  Jesus himself spoke about money frequently, for the very simple reason that money plays an important role in our lives.
