Generous Hearts Stewardship
GENEROUS HEARTS STEWARDSHIP COMMISSION educates, engages, and inspires Saint Matthew parishioners to prayerfully discern and use their God-given gifts in our thriving faith community; to create a culture of gratitude and care for God’s gifts; and to help others nurture their personal journey with the Lord. Stewardship volunteers welcome new parishioners, serve as Mass greeters, and coordinate First Saturday Happy Hour. Amy Stimpson
Children’s Stewardship promotes the idea of forming generous hearts from an early age. Children’s envelopes are available in the narthex. Children are encouraged to place their envelopes in the basket at the front of the church when called forward by the priest at the time of the Offertory.
First Saturday Happy Hour is a monthly event after 5 PM Mass with fellowship and snacks. Parish committees, commissions, clubs, groups, and families are invited to sign up to host a Happy Hour. Jim Barbar, 317-796-9016.
Mass Greeters welcome parishioners to weekend Masses. Families, couples, and individuals can sign up to be Mass greeters. Amy Stimpson or Jim Barbar, 317-796-9016.
Parish Stewardship Campaign is held annually.
Stewardship Education informs and educates our parish on the many aspects of stewardship, namely time, talent, and treasure. Education is achieved through weekly Generous Hearts thoughts, St. Matthew Ministry Fair, and periodic presentations and workshops. Amy Stimpson
United Catholic Appeal is conducted in the fall. This is a time for education and commitment of your personal stewardship to support the work of the Archdiocese. The important work includes fostering Catholic education and faith formation, encouraging vocations by educating seminarians and deacons, providing retirement benefits for our priests, and caring for people most in need throughout the Archdiocese.
