Parish Support Commitment 2020

September 21st, 2020

“Stewardship: Embrace the Little Way More” is the St. Therese Stewardship Committee theme. As St. Therese so beautifully said: “Love proves itself by deeds, so how am I to show my love?…The only way I can prove my love is by scattering flowers and these flowers are every little sacrifice, every glance and word, and the doing of the least actions for love.” Our Patron Saint set the example for us.

Everything we have is a gift from God. As Christians we receive these gifts gratefully, cultivate them responsibly, share them lovingly in justice with others, and return them with increase to the Lord. Can we follow her “little way” with a little more time in prayer? More talent in ministries? More treasure in pledges?

Please prayerfully reflect on her words, then complete your stewardship. You can complete the enclosed form, or go online at sttheresemke.org. And, giving is simpler than ever with electronic giving. If you haven’t tried yet, please visit sttheresemke.org. Returning the completed form promptly is important for the planning of our parish finances and many ministries.

Lastly, don’t confuse this Stewardship with the “Catholic Stewardship Appeal” of the Milwaukee Archdiocese or our separate monthly maintenance collection. This Stewardship is for OUR parish’s general expenses. Our heartfelt thanks to those who give any amount.

In St. Therese’s name and example,
