What is Christian Stewardship?

Christian Stewardship is…
…learning how to be a responsible and concerned caretaker of Christ’s
Church; it is learning how to enjoy Church life and be happy in Church
work., for in Her dwells the fullness of the Spirit of God.

Faithful Stewards and Friends of St. Demetrios,

Stewardship is our active commitment to use our time, talent, and treasure for the benefit of humankind in grateful acknowledgement of Christ’s redeeming love. Stewardship is offering oneself to God as He offered Himself to us. Stewardship is what a person does after saying “I believe…” as confirmation of that belief.

The year 2022 marked a significant period of growth and needed improvements for our Parish. We continued to find ways and means that enabled St. Demetrios to not only survive, but to thrive even under strenuous circumstances. In the coming year of 2023, the vision is clear: bring ALL people that come through our doors into a living relationship with Jesus Christ and His Holy Church. Our mission is to fulfill this vision.

Your support of our mission is critical. We invite you to be a part of who we are, who we are becoming, and who we are called to be as the people of God. It is as we do for our children-we support them and help them achieve their dreams. St. Demetrios Church is a beautiful jewel nestled in the heart of the Lincoln Square neighborhood on Chicago’s North Side. It has shined brightly in the hearts of thousands of people over the span of 95 years and counting.

We thank you for your love and support as our beloved church continues to shine in this vision of a new day, a new beginning, and a new dream. We look forward to being stewards together, sharing our one vision, supporting our one mission.

Yours in Christ,

 Fr. Andreas G. Georganas
