The St. Cecilia's Stewardship Committee helps our Faith Community grow stronger and more unified, and works to enable all Catholics in Ashland to recognize the value that our Faith Community can bring to our lives. Within the parish, Stewardship works to strengthen discipleship by improving communications and fostering inclusion and a sense of hospitality toward all. In the larger community of Ashland, Stewardship has the longer range goals of evangelization - to recover the lost and invite the larger community to learn about us and about Jesus' Way.
Our Mission - Building a Parish Community
The Mission of St. Cecilia Parish Stewardship Committee is to support the pastor, the other ministries, and the parish as we strive to be a welcoming and vibrant Catholic community of faith, worship, and service.
We carry out our Mission through:
- Communications, such as the Parish Newsletter and Website, and feedback from various sources shared with ministries as appropriate, for example, the Newsletter survey,
- Outreach to the greater community, such as the Ashland Day booth,
- Education, such as through the annual Christmas book and small discussion groups, and
- Fostering growth in parish numbers and spirit such as by providing an easy opportunity for parishioners to get involved by organizing Ministry Signup Weekend.
We are informed in our work by the U.S. Bishops Pastoral Letter on Stewardship, “Be a Christian Steward,“ which exhorts the faithful to be stewards of the Church, of Vocation , and of Creation.
Meeting Schedule:The first Sunday of the month at 12:00 p.m. from September through June.
Members: Alicia Boucher, Ben Dunn, Joel Farrell, Beth Hurley (Chair), Michael Joosten, Steve McMillan, Angela Smart, and Ray Zambuto
