Orthodox Christian Stewardship is a way of life, which acknowledges accountability, reverence, and responsibility before God. A primary goal of Stewardship is to promote spiritual growth and strengthen faith. Becoming a Steward begins when we believe in God, to whom we give our love, loyalty and trust and act on those beliefs. As Stewards, we affirm that every aspect of our lives comes as a gift from Him. Stewardship calls on the faithful to cheerfully offer back to God a portion of the gifts with which they have been blessed.

St. Mary’s Foundation
Established in 1978, St. Mary’s Foundation is a long-term endowment fund whose purpose is to provide fiscal stability and security to the parish. The fund is invested, by commonly accepted principles, in both fixed income and equity securities. Anyone can contribute to the foundation through extraordinary charitable giving, including bequests and legacies, as well as lifetime gifts and memorial contributions. A committee, called the Foundation Fund Board, oversees the investment of all assets.
