Read the daily quote from Pope Francis

 

Stewardship

 

"They who supply the seed will find that it multiplies, increasing the harvest of righteousness. 
They will be enriched in every way for their generosity,
for they administer public benefit and see to the needs of the Church. 
Their generosity overflows in much gratitude to God." 
2 Corinthians 9


God has given us many gifts and calls us to use those gifts to build up His Kingdom.  Our faith identifies us as stewards and gives us a relationship with God.  Many of these gifts are given for our needs; others are given for the needs of others.  Stewardship is a ministry by which we nurture and share our gifts of time, talent and treasure.    

Give of your time and talent: 

There are many ways to give of your time and talent.  The "Ministries" tab on this website lists all of the parish groups and ministries that you may consider becoming involved with.  Please call the parish office at 440-886-4434 for more information, or click the stewarship icon below, download our "Parish Interest Form," and return it to the Parish Office. 


Give of your Treasure: 

Consider these unique ways to give:

  • Donating to St. Bridget of Kildare Parish and/or School in lieu of flowers when handling funeral arrangements. 
     
  • A charitable IRA Rollover to St. Bridget of Kildare Parish upon your death to let your legacy live on.
     
  • Funding a scholarship to assist a struggling school family with tuition. 
     
  • Donating to a specific fund, such as the Liturgical Fund.  
    The Liturgical Fund is used to help decorate and create art and environment for the church during each liturgical time  (i.e., flowers, plants, vases, altar cloths, vestments, fabrics, banners, candles and other decorations).  It is also used to purchase sacred vessels and other items needed for liturgy.  Any individual or parish group is welcome to contribute money to this worthy fund. You may simply donate, or you may give in memory of a loved one, in honor of a blessing received or prayer answered, or in thanksgiving of a wedding anniversary or other special occasion. Simply fill out the “Liturgical Fund” envelope located in the back of the church and deposit it in the offertory collection basket, or drop it off at the rectory office.  Donations to the Liturgical Fund are listed in the Sunday bulletin. 
     
  • Donating to a specific Parish ministry, such as the Good Samaritan Ministry. 

    The Good Samaritan Ministry is an outreach ministry with a mission to provide compassionate care and services to those in need within the parish community. Members administer to the needs and concerns of the less fortunate living within our parish boundaries. The Ministry derives its funding with a collection the first full weekend each month. It is only through the very generous support of our wonderful parishioners that we are able to financially support our commitment to help those who have little. Good Samaritan Ministry members strive to make it known that what they do comes in the name of Jesus, never from themselves alone, as we are only his servants. The Ministry provides food, clothing, shelter (through rental assistance), medical prescriptions, utilities, transportation, furniture, and other assistance to those in need. The Ministry also works with the Ozanam Food Pantry by providing on a regular basis volunteer workers to distribute food and clothing. We also provide monetary support to other various food pantries within our local area. All the good works and deeds of the Ministry are done in the name of Christ our Savior.

Please call the Parish Office at 440-886-4434 if you would like more information.  Thank you for your generosity.
