Christian Stewardship at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church

In baptism we are called to model our lives after Jesus Christ. Our vocation is to give ourselves away. The extent of our relationship with Jesus is the extent we give of ourselves. In doing so, we become one with Jesus. Through prayer, you’ll figure out what you can give back within our Liturgy, Education, Works of Mercy and Community Life ministries.
