Stewardship of Talent

"Just as each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of the varied grace of God."  (1 Peter 4:10)

By virtue of our baptism, each Christian, each disciple of the Lord Jesus is compelled to offer their service to the work of the Church in the New Evangelization.   This faith committment is a reminder that God has blessed us with many gifts that can be used for the work of the Gospel.   Our gifts range from musical talent, to teaching, from artistry, to carpentry work, gardening, to public speaking, from cleaning to working with youth, from skills in organizing or accounting, from a passion for the service of charity to cooking for the Church festival.  Everyone has something to offer to the Church.  Each with our own skills and talents, vocations and inspirations.

This is video was produced by the Diocese of Corpus Christi Office of Parish Stewardship to promote the Stewardship of Talent.   It is a wonderful meditation and catechesis on this most important topic.

At St. John the Baptist we are always in need of volunteers and helpers.   Here is just a partial list of the many ways to share your talent with our parish community and serve the work of the Gospel.
