Mission: The Stewardship Committee strives to help parishioners recognize their many and varied God given gifts, and to encourage them to use their time, talent and treasure in the service of others.

GRACE GRATITUDE GENEROSITY
My name is Missy Frautschy and I have been a member of St. Matthias Parish since moving here from Kansas in 1978. We are called by Jesus to give to others in any way we can, so I soon became involved in various areas of parish life and ministries. I have continued and expanded that involvement through the years. That participation has enriched my life in immeasurable ways.
I have been a part of many ministries; Eucharistic minister, both to the homebound, hospital and in church, Human Concerns, adult special education, as well as many areas of the parish school and scouts. All have given me a sense of fulfillment that not only have I hopefully been a help to others but that I have grown in my own faith and sense of purpose.
I strongly feel that the gifts that are received through participation have been more rewarding than what I have given to others. This is something that I do because I want to and enjoy, not out of a sense of obligation and duty. I would encourage everyone to think about what areas of stewardship they can be part of and give it a try. If many respond, it will enrich our whole community of St. Matthias and enhance the spirit of our Parish.
