2019 Stewardship of Treasure Commitment

posted Nov 15, 2018, 9:38 AM by Teri Marshall   [ updated Nov 15, 2018, 9:40 AM ]


Earlier this year we spoke about the Stewardship of Time and then of Treasure. Now, the Stewardship Commission invites you to look at the Stewardship of Treasure. Below is a link to a flyer with a detachable commitment card. We ask that you take time to read it over, talk about Stewardship of Treasure as a household, then return the card at the weekend's liturgy. Making a commitment to give the first part of your income each year to church and charity is an act of faith and trust in God. I commend you for taking this step and am confident God will not be outdone in generosity.

Earth Care Corner - Consider Creation

Earth Care Prayer

The St. Michael Parish Earth Care Team offers this prayer for your reflection.  You might pray it every day this week.


Consider Creation

All people of the earth, each and every nation Arise and rejoice at the continued creation Of beauty, of springtime, the yearly rebirth Of our protector, our home, our own Mother Earth!

Who despite our apparent lack of care Creates bountiful splendor for all to share From mountain tops to the deepest sea all wonderful earthly miracles bursting free!

Yet this miracle of renewal requires the helping hand Of the people to replenish and renew the land From the largest of cities to the most remote farms To unite in spirit and with the strongest arms.

Become a midwife to the birth of each flower A guardian of our resources hour by hour We must learn to take time to appreciate The miracles of which we did not create.

For God has given this wonderful treasure And its preservation will be the measure Of people who recognize and will celebrate The birth of each season before it's too late.

In citizenship, in willingness to toil We must bend our backs and tend to the soil In stewardship, arise and applaud the worth Of the wondrous marvel of our Living Earth!

Consider creation. . . . Consider it now.

Taken from the website for Web of Creation, attributed to a “Coming to See” service in 1992.

St. Michael Parish Scrip Program

We are pleased to share some exciting news about a program our organization offers. It is called “Scrip”.  The program that works while you shop. 

Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money”. In other words, Scrip is gift certificates from national and local retailers. Hundreds of popular retailers participate in our Scrip program including Meijer, Shell Gas, Speedway, Cuginos and many, many others.

The program is simple.  Scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our organization at a discount. Families, like yours, buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and you and our school share the difference/rebate. Our school retains 14% of the discount, which goes towards the annual school budget and helps to cover expenses to run the program. Our families keep the remaining 86% of the discount. This amount may be applied to any of our programs offered at St. Michael or another families tuition.
