Everything we have comes from God
Stewardship acknowledges that all we have and all we are comes from God. These gifts from God are provided to us as good stewards to use them wisely, justly, and in gratitude.
Each of us must place our own gifts of time, talent and treasure at the service of one another and those in need. The Basilica of Saint Peter has many opportunities for parishioners to serve through its programs and ministries. If you need help finding the right place to serve, please call our office at 803-779-0036.
Saint Peter's depends wholly upon the generosity of our parishioners to sustain and advance our mission of helping the people of the Midlands to encounter Christ. We ask parishioners to commit to ongoing financial support for the parish, consistent with the measure with which God has blessed them.

A Stewardship Prayer
Almighty God, We give thanks for all that we have and all that we are. Most of all, we give thanks for the great gift of your Son, Jesus. We pray that through a personal relationship with the Risen Christ our hearts will be open to continued conversion in our lives.
We pray that we may be good stewards: that we will follow faithfully, serve joyfully, give generously, live responsibly and possess sensibly.
In gratitude for the abundant gifts you have so graciously given to us we return to you the first fruits of these gifts, through acts of service and by generously sharing all that You have entrusted to us.
Heavenly Father, by Your Holy Spirit, help us to be a gift to others, in Your name, so that when our time on earth is through, we may be welcomed into your heavenly kingdom and hear you say "Well done, my good and faithful servant."
