The Archdiocese of Hartford's annual Stewardship Evening took place on May 25 at the Aqua Turf Club in Southington. Parish ministries were displayed, and included everything from providing meals for the hungry to sewing for others, gardening for the parish and making banners for the parish. Steve Foran, founder of GiveRaising.org, was keynote speaker and titled his talk "Growing Parish Stewardship – What Will It Take?" Deacon Chuck Dietsch of Sacred Heart Parish in Southbury, who was buried in rubble for hours after the earthquake hit Haiti in January, also spoke.
