Stewardship

Stewardship is Eucharistic in nature – driven by a deep relationship with Jesus, gratitude for that relationship, and a desire to act on that gratitude.

A Christian steward is one who receives God’s gifts gratefully, cherishes and tends them in a responsible and accountable manner, shares them in justice and love with others and returns them with increase to the Lord.

The Stewardship Committee exists to promote stewardship as a way of life at St. Peter.  Recognizing that stewardship is our response to Jesus’ call to discipleship, the committee is responsible for all aspects of the annual stewardship efforts of time, talent and treasure and the ongoing awareness of stewardship as a way of life. We do this by helping parishioners discern, understand and respond to their individual call to stewardship.

We invite you to discern which faith group, ministry, service or fellowship group you would like to join.

  1. Start by selecting this link  Ministries at a Glance  for an easy-to-read chart that will help you find a group to match your interests and time.
  2. We ask that you pray and discover where God is calling you to engage.
  3. All volunteers are required by the Charlotte Diocese to complete Safe Environment registration for everyone’s protection.  As a volunteer, we all have a role in protecting children, young people and vulnerable adults. The USCCB  and the Diocese of Charlotte  has adopted policies and procedures to safeguard those whose care has been entrusted to us. Click below to access the policies and forms required to volunteer in our parish.  St Peter is committed to providing a safe environment for all people.
