“Thy will be done”

A stewardship parish strives to nourish the soul through prayer. Prayer and the sacraments dispose a soul to receive God’s abundant graces, which are necessary to grow in holiness. There is a deep connection between the Eucharistic celebration, thanksgiving and stewardship-ways to thank God.

In Christian tradition, liturgy means the participation of the people of God in “the work of God”. Through the liturgy, Christ our redeemer and high priest continues the work of our redemption in, with, and through His Church” (Catechism of the Catholic Church para. 1069)
