Stewardship at
St. Rose Philippine Duchesne

The foundation of stewardship is prayer. It is a lifestyle we live every day, not just on Sunday.

  • Everything we have and everything we are is a gift from God. We aren’t “owners” of anything, we are merely “stewards” of the gifts God gave us. All he is asking is to return a portion back.

  • We need to take time to thank God and be grateful for what we have. Society teaches us to want more rather than to appreciate what we already have. God provides what we need.

  • Gratitude leads to generosity – willingly sharing all our gifts. And it is not just sharing the one or wo gifts we choose. It is generously sharing all our gifts of time, talent and treasure without expecting anything in return.


St. Rose Philippine Duchesne is a very active, involved parish family with many lay volunteers donating their time and talents to the life of this parish. Thanks to their efforts, there is something for everyone at St. Rose. We offer a wide variety of parish programs for every age group and every interest - children, youth, adult, liturgical and outreach. Our Liturgical Ministries also provide an opportunity for involvement in worship, from serving the Altar to raising your voice in song.


Outreach is a substantial part of our parish life. We are involved in many programs including the Society for St. Vincent De Paul, Pro Life, Helping Hands, and many more.


There is something for everyone at St. Rose Philippine Duchesne and your participation is both welcomed and encouraged!
