STEWARDSHIP
Stewardship literally means “the job of supervising or taking care of something”. When it comes to our church, we believe that we “give” stewardship, but in all actuality, we should “take” stewardship of the Annunciation. We need to watch over it. We need to take care of it. We need to nurture it. The church needs us as much as we need it. Our job as parishioners and as stewards is to “take care” of our church, like it has taken care of us.
