St. Anthony Stewardship
Diana Veneri – stanthonystewardship@gmail.com

Stewardship can be defined simply as making the most responsible use of one’s gifts and resources. It necessitates the recognition of life as a gift, bestowed upon each person by God and responded to in a spirit of humility and gratitude.

The function of the Stewardship Committee at St. Anthony church is to maintain, grow and restructure its various ministries.

The following ministries are in immediate need of assistance:
1. The Bingo Ministry is looking for callers, help in the kitchen, assistance on the floor and with clerical duties.
2. The Eucharist’s of Holy Communion Ministry is in need of persons willing to distribute Holy Communion during mass and to area nursing homes.
3. The Secondary Youth Ministry is looking for catechist teacher assistants, especially those experienced with working with children with special needs.
4. The Nursing Home Ministry is looking for a parishioner to visit St. Anthony parish members in local hospitals and nursing homes.
5. The Funeral Mass Ministry is also looking for someone to help families with funeral mass preparations (readings and music).
6. The Parish Health Ministry is in need of those capable of taking blood pressures once a month after mass. If you are a health care professional, please consider helping with this important ministry. This ministry is also in need of a leader.

As Christians initiated into the Church through the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and the Eucharist, we become the caretakers of all that God has given us. As stewards of creation, we are entrusted with the responsibility of caring for God’s kingdom. Please consider becoming a steward for St. Anthony church. If you would like to learn more about volunteering for the ministries listed above or any other ministry, please contact David Byrne, Volunteer Coordinator, stanthonyvc@gmail.com. Ministry leaders feel free to contact me with any concerns or questions.
