        God has given everyone gifts. It’s easier to identify the gifts of other people, but we need to be able to identify our own gifts. It’s not about us: it’s about what God has given us. This 60 minute webinar will offer practical tips on how to help parishioners identify their God-given gifts and find ways of using them at home, at work in the parish and in the world.

        The Biblical steward was a person who was trusted by the owner to hire, fire, and make decisions, one who treated the property with the same care as if it were his, but “in trust” for the owner. In today's church, that's you -- the business manager -- the chief steward of all of the temporal goods of the parish. This webinar will explore the spirituality of stewardship and what it means, day-to-day, for the parish business manager or director of administration

        Many dioceses right here in the United States - including the Diocese of Lubbock - do not have enough priests to serve poorer parishes. These dioceses, classified as home missions, cannot provide for the unique needs of their parish communities. The Catholic Home Missions Appeal supports these dioceses by funding essential ministries, including seminary education and lay ministry training. Please be generous in this Appeal and help strengthen the Church at home.
