Stewardship of Sharing

Coats for Kids

Just one coat could make the difference in a person’s life this winter.   The Hortonville/Dale Food Pantry is    in need of new or gently worn winter coats of all sizes for men, women, and children.

Thanks to all our drop off locations last year, we were able to donate over 500 coats to the Hortonville/Dale Food Pantry. We met our goal!!!!

 Coats will be collected from September 11-October 19. The Hortonville/Dale Food Pantry serves 170-225  families each week. Please check your closets, ask your friends. Help us meet our goal, again this year, no one should be without a winter coat.

Collection boxes will be at the following locations: Ss. Peter and Paul   Parish, Hortonville; St. Mary Parish, Greenville; and all Hortonville Area School District schools.

Stewards are grateful people who understand that all things are a gift from God.  We believe that God has been generous with us and we in turn need to share with others.

The scripture passage  "Where your treasure is, there will your heart be" (Mt 6:21) challenges us to look at how and where we spend our financial resources.  As disciples of Jesus, we are asked to carefully consider the needs of our Church and the poor when we develop a household budget.

As generous disciples, we are asked to return a portion of our financial blessings back to the Lord.  We support the continued mission of our Church through our parish giving and are also asked to support charities that lift up the poor and vulnerable in our world.

We are stewards, not out of obligation but out of gratitude and joy for all the God has done for us.  We believe that this joy is a sign of God in our world.
