If you were able to join us yesterday for our webinar on Financial Transparency for Parishes, you may have noticed that in the discussion of good business practice, we kept coming back to the theme of trust. Being a good steward is fundamentally about being someone that others can trust, whether with the resources of a parish or — in the case of St. Joseph — the protection and safety of the Holy Family.
In this Year of St. Joseph, we were inspired to honor this great saint in a special way as a model of faithful stewardship. Today we are excited to announce the results of a special project with EWTN to bring you a series of meditations on the life and mission of St. Joseph. Starting on Monday, March 15, EWTN will be broadcasting a series of inspiring reflections from GICM on St. Joseph. Every day, we speak to a different aspect of this unique saint’s mission: as the husband of Mary, the foster father of Jesus, as a model of stewardship.
We are honored to include reflections from Cardinal Peter Turkson, Fr. Robert Gahl, Fr. Cristian Mendoza, Fr. Guy Noël, and the Very Rev. Scott Borgman. We’ve included the broadcast schedule of the series below, but please also watch our social channels for links to the videos as they are available.
