It's About Time
"Some people spend time. God's people invest time". This is the theme of our parish's Stewardship of Time campaign set for the month of January. Stewardship is the recognition that God has given us countless gifts, and asks us to be generous in giving some of those gifts back to him. Time is the first of his many gifts to us. Time can be not just something that we spend; it can be something we invest. Time is like money in that sense. Sometimes we just spend money, but sometimes we invest our money. We invest our money when we use it with the expectation that there will be some future benefit. We invest our time when we use it with the expectation of a future benefit. The more time we spend in prayer, the stronger our personal relationship with our Father and our Brother Jesus.
We are asking parishioners to make a decision to invest some time in improving their relationship with God, and to fill out a commitment form. You can use the form below or go online to www.stgregs.org/
