Please prayerfully consider your commitment of time, talent and treasure this year.
Christian stewardship begins with an understanding of who we are as Christians—as disciples of our Lord Jesus. As stewards, we recognize that all blessings come from the Lord and these blessings are to be used to serve all of creation. Stewardship as a way of life focuses not on our temporal or temporary needs, such as our building or debt; but on our spiritual “call to give.” This call lies within all our hearts.
Parishioners at Holy Name of Jesus answer this call in many ways, as you heard at Mass September 29-30. Parishioner Katie Hoffman has been part of Holy Name of Jesus for 20 years and celebrated nearly all of her sacraments with our community, and today she gives back with her involvement in THE CREW Youth Ministry. Parishioner Kris Parod joined HNOJ to find a place of belonging and has done so, along with her husband John, by getting involved in ministries including the Special Need Ministry and Men's Group breakfasts. Mari Moroz has deepened her relationship with Christ and helped our youth Know the heart of Christ, See the face of Christ and Be the hands of Christ through involvement in the Passion Play.

There are countless stories in our parish of how your gifts of time, talent and treasure have impacted our community. In this year's stewardship process, we will be once again called, as God’s faithful servants and members of our parish, to:
• Prayerfully discern how God has uniquely gifted each one of us—our time, our talents and our treasure.
• Reflect on what priority of God and the Church in our lives.
• Decide how we plan to share our gifts with God and the Church.
• Make a committed gift to God and His Church in the areas of time, talent, and treasure.
In the mail you have received a letter and commitment forms from Fr. Steve asking you to make a prayerful commitment of time in prayer, talent and treasure to our parish. Please be sure to complete your Stewardship Commitment Forms and place them in the collection during Mass or mail them to the parish office. Thank you for your generosity.
