Parish Stewardship Twenty-Seventh Sunday

in Ordinary Time


October 8, 2017

Some who read the Stewardship Spotlight may have noticed that starting a couple of weeks ago my signature line at the bottom

changed (if anyone gets that far!). I am no longer chair of the stewardship committee I am a plain member (who will continue to

write the Stewardship Spotlight). I would like to introduce Corinne Turcotte, a longstanding member of the committee and

St. Augustine parishioner, as the new stewardship committee chair. Corinne is a UF alumna with bachelors and masters degrees

and a certified public accountant, now working as an audit manager. That means that she is very good with financial responsibility!

I look forward to working with her in service to the parish.

Stewardship is not all about raising money, although that is a component of it. Stewardship is about recognizing Gods many gifts to

us and then returning them to Him through His people and His Church. At St. As, the stewardship committee has focused on

building community and fellowship among parishioners both students and non-students. A prime example of this is the upcoming

Oktoberfest to be held at the rectory on Friday, October 13 starting at 6:00 pm. There will be beer, bratwurst, other drinks and food,

and fun things to do. This is not a fundraising event it is free. It is a celebration of us the people of the parish. Please come and

bring a dessert to share. There will be childrens activities, too.

The first reading and gospel from todays mass focus on people who abused the gift of a vineyard. It is tempting to read into these

passages a strictly historical interpretation of Jesus telling the Jews of His time that they are missing the boat by not recognizing

Him and not turning to the Father. However, in this day, we are the chosen people who have been entrusted with a vineyard. Are we

being good stewards of Gods gifts and yielding much fruit, or are we abusing and neglecting Gods gifts to us?
