Finding Hope in the Cross

Do you ever think about how you experience the cross of Jesus Christ? Do you ever think about the power of that cross in your daily life? Is the cross even relevant to your life? It is to stewards of the Lord, who recognize the hope Christ brings through the gift of his cross. They acknowledge that for them, the cross is their only hope.

Stewardship Prayer for April

Christ Our Savior

As our Lenten journey brings us closer to Easter, we see with a deeper awareness our world’s desperate need to experience the healing power of your justice and peace.

Make us sacraments of your mercy and instruments of your compassion. Show us how to be better stewards of your people;
through our families,
our brothers and sisters with whom we share your Eucharist,
our neighbors, and the stranger.

Show us how to carry the cross so that by dying to ourselves, we may give new life to others. And strengthen our faith, so that we may proclaim your Easter triumph more confidently, every day, in word and deed.
