All we have is a gift from God. God has loved us and called us to love our neighbor as ourselves. This is not only a command that God gives to us, but a need that we have. Real love always gives—it is in giving that we receive. Here at St. Stephen’s there are many opportunities for sharing the gifts God has given us: personal stewardship, volunteer opportunities, liturgical ministry, community outreach and more.
We are called to give of ourselves as Jesus did:
“I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.”
