Time & Talent

All of us live on borrowed time.  God has given us the time to grow in love for Him and with others.  Stewardship of time means spending wisely this precious commodity of life.  Each day is a gift from God, and is always an opportunity to be closer to Him.

Most of our parishioners spend their time through prayer: either by attending daily Mass, or by spending their time in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament to develop and strengthen our relationship with God. Please visit the bulletin, worship and faith formation pages to learn more.

How about you?  Do you commit yourself to prayer, as you grow in your relationship with God?  How many hours of each day do you devote yourself in helping people?  Or perhaps, how qualitative is the time you spend with your loved ones?  Do you have regrets about your past?  Do you worry about your future?

Are you valuing the time you have right now? Are you spending it wisely?


What is the meaning of Stewardship?

Time – refers to prayer, the time you are willing to spend in prayer with God; strengthening your relationship with God and with others.
Talent – refers to your participation & service in charitable initiatives; using your God given talents serving & helping others; how you give of your self for the gifts you have received.
Treasure – refers to your generosity in supporting the each other, the parish and other charitable initiatives. Sharing your treasure also refers to having a gratitude; having grateful heart for all you have been given.


Stewardship is a way of life. It means that we recognize all we are and all we have is a gift from God. Volunteers are important to St. Veronica Parish! Volunteers share their precious time and God given talents, gifts, skills and abilities to participate in and support the life of the parish. To volunteer, please fill out St. Veronica’s Volunteer Form.



Fall Stewardship Prayer
“Lord Jesus Christ,
As we begin to shift from summer schedules to autumn demands,
teach us to recognize you,
and help us follow you amidst our busy life.
Open the Scriptures to us
that we may know you, see you, hear you –
in the voices of friends and family,
in the ministries of our parish, in the proclamation of the Word,
and in the Breaking of the Bread.
Teach us to be good stewards,
that we may use your gifts wisely
and care for all those you place in our path.
Encourage us, when we are overwhelmed. Strengthen us,
when we are frightened. Challenge our complacency.
Help us make this new season a time of spiritual renewal, hope, and action to proclaim
the Gospel in our words
and in our deeds.
For the kingdom and the power
and the glory are yours,
now and forever.
