It's Time to Share

February 18, 2010
Go to www.stgianna.ca and you’ll meet a parish community that’s very much alive in the faith.  Surprisingly, this St. Gianna parish community in Winnipeg has not had a churchFatherDG building they can call their own since they had their first Mass in 2004.  On their website, you’ll see a video of their church building in the making.
Tune in to tonight's Perspectives, February 18th, and you’ll hear from the pastor Fr. Darrin Gurr about one of the secrets to building a strong parish:  instilling a sense of stewardship in people.  Stewardship is the offering of our gifts of time, talent, and treasure.  This Lenten season, his whole community will focus on the “Time Fair”.
Kids are not exempt either.  Check out the Stewardship section of the website which offers reflections and testimonials on the impact of stewardship in our personal lives.  In particular, check out the stewardship program Noah’s Buddies & Friends, and Steward Little, which ignite stewardship in children.
