What is Stewardship?
Stewardship is the grateful response of a Christian disciple who recognizes and receives God’s gifts and shares those gifts with God and neighbor. (USCCB, Stewardship, A Disciple’s Response, 1992)
At Our Lady of Peace Parish we respond to our Baptismal call through sharing our talents, time, and treasure with our Parish. We see stewardship as a way of life, a journey toward discipleship. Stewardship is not a program or a process, rather an opportunity to utilize the many gifts we have received to deeper our relationship with God and those around our spiritual home.
We share our Time
We share our time in prayer with one another. From the Sunday Liturgies, to Mass Intentions, to Holy Seasons, when we gather together in prayer, our communion with each other is strengthened. We hold each other in prayer, we are mindful of the prayers needed in our community, we celebrate the Eucharist together, we experience a faith alive in the pews and at home.
We share our Talent
Each on of us is bestowed with unique gifts. Your gifts may change over time, as well as your interest in sharing those talents. We have opportunities for skilled volunteers, from the Finance Council to Religious Education. We host opportunities to learn more about OLOP ministries at Ministry Fairs. We hope you consider yourself invited and encouraged to participate in our Parish by sharing your talents with this community.
We share our Treasure
Every Sunday we are asked to contribute to the Parish through a gift toward the offertory. In addition to Sunday giving, our Parish has a variety of events throughout the year that support the programs, ministries, and Liturgies of the Parish. However you choose to share your gifts of treasure, we have attempted to make it easy on you by offering online giving for many events and the Sunday Offertory.

We appreciate the many ways you contribute to the Parish and will continue to keep you and your intentions in our prayers.
