Our Stewardship

Our Stewardship

We at St. Edward exist because people care about our parish. The vast majority of the parish work is accomplished through the time, treasure and talent of our parishioners. We invite you to consider sharing your God-given gifts and to help keep our parish strong and vital. Our parish offers many opportunities for service in liturgy, faith formation, outreach, and many other ways for you to get involved here.   A good place to start looking for a way to get invoived is under ”Our Parish Life” and “Faith Formation” or just Contact Saint Edward” in this website or call the church office, 503-393-5323.

Stewardship:

To be a good steward means to make good use of the gifts that God has bestowed upon us. Stewardship is a living out of our commitment to be Christ-Centered rather than simply self-centered. Profound gratitude is in the end, our fundamental motive for giving back to God. Everything that God has given to us is intended to serve the divine plan. In a variety of ways,  we as disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, share our time, talent and treasure to build up the Church and make our world a better place.

Use of Envelopes:

We deeply appreciate those who make a regular commitment of support, so that the parish can better plan its income and expenses. That’s important for the financial stability of our parish.
