Welcome to Saint Lawrence!
Many wonderful things happen here at Saint Lawrence - the Mass and Sacraments, Eucharistic Adoration, Saint Lawrence School, religious education and youth ministry, outreach to the poor, care for those in jail, visits to the homebound and those in nursing homes, community building, and so much that make Saint Lawrence a community of deep faith. I am excited to be a part of this work of Jesus Christ!
Father Eric Underwood
Saint Lawrence, Pray for Us!
A Parish Family Requires Faithful Family Members: Like any family, a parish family depends on people whose hearts are fully committed to the whole. St. Lawrence has a strong foundation as a family of faith – and wonderful people who are called together to love God above all things and our neighbor as ourselves. This work takes the involvement and support of every member. We call this stewardship.
God has called us to be good stewards of His Church. Everything we have at our disposal in life belongs to God – and we are tasked with taking good care of it.
Stewardship in the parish involves sharing three things that God has given to each of us:
- The time that God has given to you is to be shared for the building up of His Kingdom. How much of your time each week do you dedicate to God’s work?
- The money that God has provided you through your hard work. Are you sharing from your resources (your treasure) to help your parish family do the work of God?
- The unique gifts that God has given to you. Are you letting the light of Christ shine forth by using your talents (parish involvement) for the glory of God?
