"Well done, good and trustworthy servant; you have shown you are trustworthy in small things; I will trust you with greater; come and join in your master's happiness." 

                                                                               - Matthew 25:21

St John the Baptist embraces the idea of Christian Stewardship.  This is more than the giving of funds to run the parish.  As Catholics, stewardship is an important part of our faith.  Stewardship is not just another program, nor is it easy.  Christian stewardship is a way of life, it is a way to have a relationship with God.  Grateful for the time, talents and treasure given by God we believe it is our responsibility to recognize what we have been given, cultivate them, share them with others and improve upon them for the Lord.  It is powerful to realize that everything, your life, your talents, your treasure, even your faith itself, is a gift from God and that He has trusted you to share and invest them wisely.  It is this awesome trust and responsibility which calls us to live our lives as stewards.  one of the many ways you can be a Christian steward is to give back to God through the parish community.
