Time, Talent & Treasure
Stewardship of Time: Recognizing that every day is a gift from God, we strive to spend some of each day with God, through prayer, Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, scripture reading, quiet meditation and other spiritual activities.
Stewardship of Talent: The greatest resource of St. Mary Parish is the people who make up our community. Many parishioners have chosen to get involved in the life of the parish by joining one of the various groups or ministries. There are many opportunities here at St. Mary Parish to participate in serving the community. We encourage everyone in our parish family to share their gifts and talents with us and to join in service to one another. Click on the Ministry links to the right to learn more.
Stewardship of Treasure: As disciples of Jesus, each of us has a responsibility to support the Church and to contribute generously to the building up of the Body of Christ. Frequently, in discussions of stewardship, reference will be made to the "biblical tithe" (giving 10% of income) and other norms that could provide helpful guidelines for generous giving.

Pray As You Go
A new prayer session is produced every day. It is not a 'Thought for the Day', a sermon or a bible-study, but rather a framework for your own prayer. Lasting between ten and thirteen minutes, it combines music, scripture and some questions for reflection available online or for MP3 download for listeners “on the go". It is produced by Jesuit Media Initiatives, with material written by a number of British Jesuits and other experts in the spirituality of St Ignatius of Loyola. Although the content is different every day, it keeps to the same basic format.
