Stewardship: The careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one’s care; one of the largest responsibilities God places on our shoulders, something that needs to be an intentional effort and a priority.

Tuition Assistance Program (TAP):

  • TAP has been established since 2009 for our parishioners to support our students at STA Catholic School.

  • It provides tuition assistance to families that are in need of financial assistance and qualified by Catholic Education Fund (CEF) but were put on the wait list because CEF cannot cover all qualified families.

  • TAP provides $500 assistance to each student on the CEF wait list.

  • Each year, TAP helps 26 or more students. We have been achieving our goal of raising $13,000 annually.

Sponsor a Student at STA Catholic School:

  • Some STA School families would like to have their children study and grow up in a Catholic environment but cannot afford the full tuition.

  • Even with the $500 financial assistance from TAP, some families need additional assistance.

  • If you would like to help supporting their children’s education and become a sponsor, please fill out the following form and mail it to the parish.

  • If you have any questions, please send an email to Fr. John at stapastor@gmail.com.

Baby Blankets:

  • Currently, we are setting up this new program to welcome about 40 babies who are baptized every year here at STA Church.

  • If you know how to knit, crochet or make baby blankets, and would like to be a part of this welcoming party, please contact our general manager, Lorraine Melendez, at stamanager1@gmail.com.

Envelopes:

  • Registered parishioners receive a few STAC envelopes every month for convenience.

  • Fill in your name, register no. and amount of donation on the envelope before putting them in the Sunday collection basket or delivering them to the parish office.

  • All donations via STAC envelopes will be recorded in the parish system. If you would like to receive a receipt of your donations, please send a request to the parish office at the end of year. You will receive a receipt that covers all of your donations via STAC envelopes.

Church Restrooms Remodeling:

  • STA Church has a woman and a man’s restroom since its construction in 1961. They are now insufficient as the number of our parishioners grows.

  • We have been fund raising for the remodeling of our current restrooms and part of the sacristy area to provide a woman, a man and two (2) accessible family restrooms.

  • We have raised more than 80% of the necessary fund and need $20,000 more to complete the project.

  • If you would like to support this project, please donate directly to the church.

  • Or, you can donate by purchasing a tile that will be displayed on the Wall of Honor where you can honor someone in your life, living or deceased, and or give honor to God for any reason of your choice. For more details, please contact our general manager, Lorraine Melendez, at stamanager1@gmail.com.
