STEWARDSHIP & HOSPITALITY
STEWARDSHIP & HOSPITALITY
“His master said to him, ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. Since you were faithful in small matters, I will give you great responsibilities. Come, share your master’s joy.’ “ – Matthew 25:21
“Anyone who gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ, amen, I say to you, will surely not lose his reward.” – Mark 9:41
God uses ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things. Please consider how you can use your skills and time to support the vision and mission of St. Robert.
The Stewardship Committee oversees stewardship education in the Parish, including parishioners’ annual pledge of their gifts of time, talent and treasure.
Planned Giving Committee
The Planned Giving Committee is responsible for informing parishioners about opportunities and methods for making planned gifts, and for soliciting planned gifts to the Parish.
Volunteers are needed to advertise, sell Scrip cards after Masses and fill orders for this program that raises funds through contributions to the Parish from participating retailers. (If you would like to purchase Scrip, please see our Financial Stewardship & Fundraising page.)
St. Robert Parish Fair
Kick off summer with food, fun, games and live music! St. Robert hosts a Parish Fair on the first full weekend in June, around the time of St. Robert of Newminster’s feast day. Enjoy traditional favorites like an Irish pub, Mexican cantina, corn roast, Saturday’s St. Bob-e-que and Sunday’s chicken dinner. There’s fun for everyone, with a rummage sale, book bin, bakery, bouncy house and face painting! All this fun requires many volunteers to work a variety of jobs including selling food, staffing game booths and the rummage sale, working on the grounds crew, setting up and cleaning up. Check out our bulletin and newsletter in May for details and volunteer signup opportunities.
Making Parishioners, both new and long-term, feel welcome and appreciated is central to the life of a Parish. At St. Robert, there are many ways this happens. Aside from liturgical ministries such as Usher/Greeter, opportunities to extend hospitality include…
New Members Welcome Committee
Volunteers welcome new members and help them to get to know our Parish community.
Volunteers provide food for hospitality after Sunday masses (juice, bagels, donuts or cookies) or provide a dish to pass after select 4:30 Saturday Masses and other occasional events.
Senior Luncheon & St. Nick Party
Volunteers set up, serve and clean up for these free gatherings held every year, featuring music, crafts and dinner for all ages.
