To fulfill our mission we provide resources for worship, prayer, education, administration, outreach, and witness. The Stewardship Council, which will function as a Pastoral Council might, assesses and responds to stewardship needs within the parish. We respond to the identified needs by organizing ministries that meet these needs, coordinating the workings of said ministries, groups, and committees within the parish, and providing leadership to set the direction for future stewardship activities. Individually members of the Council participate by serving on other committees, Parish Ministries, and sub- committees. The Stewardship Council seeks to infuse the theology and practice of stewardship into the life of the parish and assist members of St. Bernadette to recognize that all that we have is pure gift from God. The Stewardship Council works to inform parishioners of the many opportunities to use their giftedness to build up the kingdom of God by sharing their time, talent, and treasure. The Stewardship Council further seeks to instill a sense of hospitality, spirituality, and accountability in parish members through recommitment, outreach, and prayer.
